On the go with the Minimalism challenge

September 14th, 2022
Thank you to Jackie @30pics4jackiesdiamond for hosting the previous "Crafting" Minimalism Challenge and to all who took part. I am flabbergasted that I have the honor of hosting the next round.

The theme I have chosen is "Travel." That can be interpreted widely -- travel by plane, bus, train, car, bike, hiking. Travel can mean vacation travel to a different continent or travel the familiar M-F route to work. I'm not looking for pictures of the scenery at the destination. The picture should portray some aspect of the traveling or means of travel. (A caveat -- we had a car/car detail minimal challenge last year -- so while I won't completely disqualify a picture of a beautiful car headlight, it would be much nicer to look beyond that particular subject.) The main qualification is that it must be minimalist -- the point of this challenge!

I'm copying and pasting below from previous hosts as I am fairly decently lazy and it would take me forever to research sources of info and inspiration and think of new and creative ways to say what has already been said so nicely.

Minimalism is the art of less is more. Minimalist photography uses the minimum amount of components such as colour, shape, line and texture to emphasise the subject matter and 'negative space' can play a big part in minimalist images.

For tips and inspiration, have a look at:
