Moody Monday: Simple -

$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
As I took my first look at simple, the theme for this week's Moody Monday, my thinking went directly to minimalism in relation to this photograph. As I began running it through the filters and manipulators here at the Secret Visual Laboratory, early efforts seemed too minimal. After backing up a bit and taking a little bit from the original and a little bit from the overly simple, I came upon this version. It may not be minimal, but it sure strikes me as simple. So be it.

Since I've already been there once, I can tell for certain, a return visit is decidedly on my want list!

This is simple, but absolutely peaceful and harmonic. I like this very much:

Sitting there
in the chair
watching disappearing
summer scene.

Cooler? It's a corkscrew and the secret hip flask that's required here. Did I hear somebody burp?

Who's on first!

I was sitting there for a while. Then, a chicken barbecue on a fabulous deck with an even more impressive view of the Lafayette Hills got in the way! :D

Thanks for the wonderful comment and the beautiful poem. :)

Thanks so much for the comment (blush!).

LMAO @ or I'm just a lousy thief ... we don't use the phrase theivery here. The term repurposed is a much friendlier way to put it. :D

Thanks for saying so, Kirsi. That particular view of the hills beyond is all of the things that you just said. :)

This is so serene - the cool colors, the simple composition, and the the lovely soft treatment. I'd like to sit in that chair and just daydream the hours away...

Thanks so much for this thoughtful description. It occurs to me that this is the only purpose of the chair in this environment ... to daydream the hours away. :)
