In April 2014 I attended a Westmoreland Photography Society (Pennsylvania) meeting. The topic for the night’s photo critique was Minimalist Photography . Wanting to know what photographs to take or cull from my archives I looked up minimalism in photography on the Internet…
The WordPress weekly photo challenge for November 7, 2014, is minimalist photos: An artfully executed minimalist photograph is anything but mundane. It illustrates a moment in time, or an artistic perspective, with simplicity and grace.
I had just completed reviewing some of my 2003 New England photos when I checked out the week’s photo subject. Thus, I decided to use some of them for the minimalist photo challenge. The scenes are mostly those of The Isles of Shoals: Beauty, Mystery, Intrigue . The isles are a group of islands 8-10 miles off the Maine/New Hampshire shoreline. We took a boat ride to the islands and spent a day there on our 2008 visit to New England.
Some of the photographs were taken on the island, while others were taken from Wallis Sands Beach in Rye, New Hampshire.
