Recently I asked on Facebook and in my newsletter for people to suggest one word to me, and I'd create a blog post about my interpretation of their word just for them. It makes sense that each blog post will be a combination of photographs I've taken and my thoughts on the subject.
I've decided to call this series of blog posts "One Word". And I'll do these as long as you keep giving me your one word.
One Word — Calm
Photographing flowers is my zen moment. This magnolia tree was beautiful to see AND to smell. This is one time I wish we had smell-o-vision.
I hope my interpretation of this beautiful magnolia, with it's simple color palette, brings you a moment of calm. (Actually, I hope it brings you many moments of calm.) I was feeling "old world charm" with this minimalist image. The craquelure texture, plus a bit of sepia toning, gives the image an old and classic look, while the singular flower invites you to a calmer place.
Available for your wall
I've even added this image plus two other magnolia images to my online shop at a special discount for a limited time. (No other discounts apply. Don't you hate that?)
Marcia, thank you, for your word suggestion!
Add Your Word
I'd love if you'd add your word in comments below! (Or email me or message me through Facebook.) I'll choose from my photo archives or create a new artistic photograph just for you, based on my interpretation of the word you suggest. My narrative might be long or short. :)
