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.
