Simplicity in the Sun

Photographers are often drawn to the desert. We are mystified by lighting that bounces between the red rocks, the sand, the mountains, the cacti, and the sun-filled sky. Throw in one of the more photogenic breeds, the Arabian horse, and you are sure to not disappoint.

The more time I spend investing in my art, the more I feel I am attracted to simplicity. The big picture is obvious. I have learned to zoom in nice and personal to a small portion of the setting, leaving the viewer hungry for the rest of the story. As of late, I have learned that life is scary and unpredictable. It is challenging and I often feel overwhelmed with the big picture. However, if I zoom in and focus on one simple facet, I can breathe. I can focus. Best of all, it makes me hungry for the rest of the story and it fills me with zest.
