Simple Pleasures

Already the second week in Kim Klassen's Beyond Beyond class...or has she is changing it to 2B class.

Focusing on aperture (or f-stop), we were challenged to do a still shot with a variety of apertures.  Mine ranged from f1.8 to f4.  The lower the number, the greater amount of light allowed into the photograph.  All photos were taken in my "gray" room.

Here are mine...and I chose to pair them with quotes focusing on the theme of simplicity. 

f/4

Simple and Wise

f/2.2

Honest and Truthful

f/1.8

Changing Lives

f/2.8

Courage and Risk


f/2

Pearls Slipping Off a String

f/3.2

Art of Simplicity

Wonderful sentiments...fun lesson...and great use of this pale aqua ceramic bowl from one of my favorite and reasonable stores for props...TJMaxx...$2.99.

I'm grateful for a simple post, nothing heavy or complex...with a subtle undertone of the way to live life.

  7. Beautiful, Denise! All of them are lovely -- and what a bowl!! I think I would have to say the Laura Ingalls Wilder quote is my favorite but I have a soft spot for her anyway... : )
