A Refreshing Dose of Minimalism

Sunset Glow Over Wilkeson Pointe, minimalism with location signature, Buffalo, New York (NY).Sunset Glow Over Wilkeson PointeMinimalism with location signature On my way back from location scouting around Buffalo I stopped at the outer harbor, a place that's seen a ton of improvement over just a few years. Specifically, I found my way to the new Wilkeson Pointe park that opened in June 2013. it was very late, well after sunset, and I hoped to enjoy peace and quiet and soak in the atmosphere while waiting for my camera to capture some long exposures. And it worked really nicely, sharing the location only with a deer family and a beautiful huge moth.

How do you photograph peace and quiet? I thought a minimalist representation of the scene would work, representation with a bare minimum of elements yet with a clear signature, at least for those that know the place. I enjoy minimalist photography and other art forms as they offer plenty of room for interpretation, for imagination to go wild. I also enjoy practicing minimalism in my photography. Yet, looking through my blog, the last time I posted anything on the topic was back in 2012 (Minimalism - Can There Be Too Little?Color or Black and White?). So here's a recent one.

Have fun finding your peace and quiet!
