This type of photography is about composition, textures, colors, patterns, and often, the use of negative space. It isn't as easy as it looks, because keeping it "simple" and yet including ANY of the items above can be very difficult.
This week I have two images. They are not new, but they had not been edited before last night.
And the old adage about buying animals expensive toys is true...just give a cat a box and you have saved a lot of money.
My second photo is of a rooster out free-ranging in the yard. It is much easier to control a cat in a box with a paper background, then it is to figure out where a rooster might go, or for that matter, when he might actually stand still.
Again, this photo had been in my archives, but never edited, and it turns out it may well be one of my most favorites of Eugene.
