‘Minimalist’ is the title of the Weekly Photo Challenge. And for me it is a real challenge – an everyday challenge … I have a daily notion that I would like to lead an uncluttered life and yet even clearing my mind often seems to be an impossible hurdle.
This image, taken on a deep winters day between Mauriac and Riom es Montagnes in Le Cantal of a tree naked and stark against it’s monochrome background was captured in full colour, not edited and yet has the purity of a black and white. Perhaps winter should be the season to rehearse my inner minimalist …
PS: The title is from Pablo Neruda (Poem XVII – I Do Not Love You)
