Simplify


In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness. 
 ~ Henry David Thoreau

Finding beauty in the Browns and Grays. Two of my favorite colors.

I like the simplicity of this photo, the colours and the texture of brown leaves which can be seen more clear when the photo is enlarged.

I think it is so amazing how photography can make you see interesting and beautiful things where you NEVER saw them before! I find myself always searching the landscape for interesting items to photography...and finding them literally everywhere!

I've always loved to take pictures of dried grass, old wood and things like that. This is a beautiful picture!

I agree, brown and gray can be hard to see the beauty in, but when you take a second look, it can change your whole perspective on the colors.

Indeed, even in brown and grey there is beauty.

John Roberts said...

Photography almost forces us to look again at everything, and re-evaluate what we see. As you've discovered, we can find a kind of beauty almost anywhere, even where we thought none existed.

This capture shows the essence of late autumn. I like to use shots like this in videos, especially if rain is dripping from the leaves.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I plant to give the answer to your question in my next post on Perk.

Gray and brown can be drab colors, but your photo brings out the beauty of it. :-)

I'm glad you liked the Sign Thank You post. My husband spent 20 years in the Navy.

Like you this last year my view on things I like have widened such a lot. I now see real beauty all around me in everyday things. I have always like the bigger picture of a woodland view.. now I look closely at the single leaves and the colours thereon.
All this change because of getting my first camera and finding out I like blogging.
I have to admit as well that I am drawn to the friendliness of my blog buddies.

I love the way photography gives me new eyes. I like the earthy tones too.
Re your question, yes I think I have the creeping crud too. I am trying to ignore it though. I just have too much to do.
Thanks for asking.

Beautiful picture. We still have a few limbs with brown leaves on them.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Great colors but then i always did like gray and brown, so what changed your mind about those colors?

Lilli & Nevada said...

Forgot to tell you, yes it has been on the market for sale since last yr. 2 offers but no sale. They only want the land.

Viola said...

To some extent I believe simplicity is beauty. This picture just makes me more believe this point.

Paulie said...

Well, the reason I like the drab colors of late fall are because I know winter is soon coming and usually that brings us some snow which I love.

KOSTAS said...

The grey him they compose 250 nuances the white and black.
The opposition is always in our life.
Have... Merry Christmas.

Alyssa said...

Kerri - Thank you for stopping by. Your photography is breath-taking. I'm glad your outlook on life has changed over the year. I like that your selections are varied, from a large landscape to a simple, but complex, subject as a few leaves. Very lovely, indeed.

Max-e said...

Hi Kerry
Been playing catch-up and have been enjoying your posts.
As you can see I am back in action - not quite 100%, but nearly there. Thanks for all your thoughts and comments during my recuperation

It is amazing how seemingly 'boring' colors can be beautiful in the right context. Great work on showing us this!
