Monday Minimalism ~ Subtracting

In photography, as I am finding in life in general, things don’t necessarily become better by adding more, but by subtracting. I’ve been going back through my home as I pack up to move to determine what it is that is really important to me, and letting the rest go. In photography, I go back through old photos of a big wonderous landscape and take away all but what I now consider the essence. Balance, flow as I go. It’s all perception.

    I agree Angeline. There are so many distractions, that it takes conscious effort to focus on what’s important.

      After returning from Mexico I realized that with all the color, and wonderful things to see and photograph, my mind was in a whirl. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but now at home and clearing surplus stuff, I see how maybe a little more focus is good for me right now. Thanks, Su.

      Oh, Shimon! How good to hear from you. It has not been easy letting go of so many things that have memories of my late husband attached to them, but I must move forward to continue a new chapter. I hope you have been well. Thanks for your well wishes.
