NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 2 (November 2)

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://anitashree.com/2017/10/12/its-approaching-that-time-again/ !

When I was back in Saskatchewan (with a side trip to Alberta) in September, on that photography workshop and travel-around-to-take-pictures excursion with my friend Susan (which sadly I failed to finish blogging about, as I seem to do with all my vacation blogging), I discovered what I really like taking pictures of.  Not landscapes, or people (I never take pictures of people).  But (well besides kittens and flowers – I do like taking pictures of them…don’t know if you noticed) I really like taking pictures of broken, rusty, somewhat less than perfect looking things.

Some people call this wabi sabi, which is the art of imperfection, impermanence, and the natural (http://www.discoverdigitalphotography.com/2016/wabi-sabi-photography-the-art-of-the-imperfect/).  And lots of photographers seem to also be into wabi sabi in some way.  Guess I am too.

Anyway, here are a few of the things I like taking pictures of – I took all of these on my Saskatchewan/Alberta trip.  These are from what I am now calling my Rusty collection.  I’ll show you some from other kinds of collections (yet to be named) in the next few posts.  And then I will pull out the big girl camera once again and take some fresh photos to really begin to explore my affinity for the imperfect.

  1. Wabi sabi? How cool! I like photos like this! 🙂

  2. Lots of beauty in rusty gold. 😃

  3. I’d never heard of wabi sabi before (and neither had my autocorrect!). Cool photos!

  4. Wabi Sabi is a terrific name, it rolls off the tongue. I never would have thought about the idea of admiring rusty things and yet there are so many of them around us, it must be fascinating when you find something that fits the bill and it is an unusual item too. There is a cartoon character called Salad Fingers who likes to caress rusty spoons, kettles and other objects in a creepy way (I wouldn’t watch it, would probably scare your kitties!) Thank you for an enlightening post, photography gets more and more interesting every day 🙂
