FMTSO Simplicity


Friday My Town Shoot Out for today is Simplicity
In photography  the technique of simplicity is used to achieve the effect of singling out an item or items from their surrounding.  An example of simplicity; focus is on the flowers, without any background clutter Wikipedia


I removed the back ground clutter from above photo to create the simple flower.

Hi There, So glad to get home and back to blogging. We did have a fabulous trip--but home is pretty nice also!!!!!

I kept thinking about you all during our trip... You would have been snapping pictures right and left.... I took almost 2500--but you would have done many more...

Great header!!!!

Very nice "simple photo" :-)

I love simplicity! I guess that's because I'm such a simple minded person... at least that's what my wife calls me :-)

Have a great weekend
