ARCHIVE 184 – THREE SMALL CREATURES
October 8, 2015 16 Comments
Being Minimalist in general outlook – less is more and simple is definitely beautiful!!! – I love the reduction here to pure silhouette, as well as the different flight attitudes of these three individuals.

UPDATE: this was posted over four years ago, and there’s no doubt that my visual tastes have altered, if only a little, in that time. Now, seeing these three small silhouettes surrounded by all of that white – and bearing in mind too that my blog has a white background – I wondered about adding a thin, dark border to the image – to contain and delineate it I suppose. Or, then again, I considered making these silhouettes larger in the frame.
But, thinking these ideas over, I rejected them. Why? Because I value the impression that this picture gives of these three small creatures moving through – and being completely at home in – all of that air, all of that atmosphere, all of that otherwise empty sky.
