Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

I don’t take too many minimalist photos but I found one that almost fits the bill.  I liked this one enough to have it printed and displayed in our outdoor living room as the colors kind of mirror the colors of the “room”.  This was taken with a telephoto lens during our recent trip to Europe.  These two ladies were peering out a window high above the main square in Heidelberg, Germany.  They both had kind of thoughtful expressions on their faces (or maybe they were just bored).  I think the minimalist nature of the photo draws you to those expressions and makes you wonder what was really going on inside those minds……


A penny for your thoughts….

    • Thanks Anna! I’m glad you like it! I actually didn’t think much of it when I took it, but the more I cropped it down to its present state, the more I liked it.

      • I really like it. Their expressions, that window… The thoughts that they are sharing in silence and could be anything and everything. 🙂 wonderful.

      • Thanks Anna – your comments reflect what I liked about it also. I never know if its just me that likes something or whether it will appeal to others.

  3. That works, Scott, and really focuses the viewer on the facial expressions.

  5. I like the dark background that you can’t see anything inside and that draws us to the faces of the ladies. Good telephoto shot.
