Simplicity Is Beautiful

I often feel the need to create, and today was one of those days.

The Power Of Asking Why (2).jpg

Maybe it was because we visited the Peninsula Fine Arts Center  - or maybe because it was rainy and overcast - or maybe I just needed an escape from the kids... but I felt inspired to bring in my little wooden table from the front porch and capture the blueberries and strawberries I bought this morning for breakfast.

There's great lighting from the sliding glass doors that lead out to the deck in our kitchen. I love the simplicity of the wooden table coupled with a bunch of blueberries - or a few strawberries. Then I began photographing my computer and iPhone 7 to submit to stock photography websites.

What makes the images beautiful for me is their simplicity.

Simple colors - simple layout - simple composition... Our minds are filled with business all day! It's a breath of fresh air when we can capture or enjoy a simple, beautiful, yummy photo of blueberries.

My four year old wouldn't let me take photos of the strawberries with the phone...  you can see his little hands in one of the photos! He also ate the rest of the blueberries.... so these are the only photos you'll get for now.


Have a beautiful day!
