  1. Stunning, wonderful, philosophical pictures!
    Yes, it’s true we tend to find solutions bearing an idea in mind of what things should be for ourselves and we can’t see what’s in front of us- as we have to get rid of the image of what we would like to be, a fraught preventing us from realizing our real self. I am opening my eyes right now; sometimes the past is scary, mainly because of how I let myself got entangled in other people’s visions, I adjusted too much to what they wanted from me. Being oneself is a minimalist affair indeed- we are just what we are, not more, not less.
    BTW, I love Mies Van der Rohe’s motto, “Less is more”, which I can apply to my negative talking, indulging in parental modeled toxic relationships…Let’s just keep it simple to our authentic core! xxx

    1. Thank you very much 🙂

      M is for… mistakes. That’s my secret ‘M’ behind each of these shots. I originally started out intending to do a purist type of minimalism, but one mistake after another led me to what I ended up with. Which I liked and decided to go with where the flow had taken me.

      Sometimes we aim for less and end up with more, and sometimes we aim for more and end up with less. If we can let go of what our aim was and accept where our shot at target landed, then we can perhaps simplify the moment for ourselves and go out the door. On to the next thing.

      It’s not that long ago when I would not have been able to accept any of the shots which I took. I would have minimalised myself to death and never walked through the door because I would have only seen a wall where the door was located. I would have been stuck.

      I love your concept that – “Being oneself is a minimalist affair indeed- we are just what we are, not more, not less.”
