Thanks to Northy for organizing the previous challenge and for all your votes. Real boost to win as it was pretty much the only day I managed to go out with my camera during June.

So, onto the next minimalist theme! We're all learning together as we travel through the list and, having tackled urban details, landscape and street, it's time now to get to grips with "mini-texture/form". I guess this is where the cross over with abstract can really kick in, so enjoy!!

As original post:
Many definitions & examples of minimalist photography out there to consider. Here is a guideline: Minimalism is indeed the art of less. As a life philosophy, minimalists focus on a few essential elements of life and cast unnecessary things aside. Same pretty much goes for this photography style. Keep effects and processing to a minimum also :o)

To narrow down the entries for each challenge, we'll have 5 themes and repeat them in cycles.

mini-urban details (doors, windows, building details, bridges, stairs furnishing etc..)

(The winner of this challenge will then start the 'mini-scape1', the winner of that will start 'mini-street1', next will be 'mini-textform1' then 'mini-lightshadow1' and then on with 'mini-urban2')

Beginning today Sat 30th June and open for entries until Wed 18th July. Please make sure your shots are taken within this time frame. I'll then post a shortlist of finalists and, as always, everyone will have a chance to vote ...

tag your images 'mini-textform1'

if you also post to this thread, it will keep it active. you might also share any definitions you find about minimalism, and general thoughts about what qualifies and what doesn't, and how you went about composing your image ...

have fun and i look forward to seeing your minimalist interpretations

hey Catherine... i'm not sure you can have a slash in a tag... i used mini-text/form1... but when i click on it nothing comes up... i've also used mini-textform1 which does work...
