Welcome the the Highlight Real for WEEK 2: Empty.
I know this may have been an exercise is stretching to capture this concept. I love the entries, and can't wait to share them, so here goes...
The image that stood out the HARDEST in my mind was this one, by Amy Bueschel. Not only do I really FEEL the EMPTINESS here, it is a comforting emptiness. Serenity.
This echoes my favorite sand pattern imagery from Ansel Adams.
I would hang this on my wall.
^^ This is why I don't limit to 1 entry. Sometimes you just outdo your first attempt! My kids asked me yesterday, "WHAT IS THE THEME THIS WEEK, MOM?" When I told them it was "extra" they were like, "HOW DO YOU TAKE A PICTURE OF THAT?"
I swear they question EVERYTHING I DO.
Then they start telling me the ways we could set up a picture for extra. I assured them, there is so much EXTRA. If we just open our eyes we will see it right before us.
On to the next picture.

guh. I'm a sucker for green eyes and freckles!
This next one is my own submission. I stumbled on a perfect studio space last week, and this window is in it. I am excited to have HQ and a place to breathe and create. I am sharing the space with a photographer friend of mine, and I am excited to be working along side her IRL.
This image also brings me back to my art roots, as I am a huge Andrew/N.C. Wyeth fangirl...
Danielle Bolton submitted this gorgeous space full of just the right kind of emptiness. This is like, a dream location for me to shoot in.
I want to go to there.
Please note: I am also a sucker for redheaded dogs.
If these were mine I might get lost staring at this image for hours..

All of this week's submissions were great. I know it is a little of a mind bend sometimes to wrap around an almost intangible concept, but keep swinging at it.
Creativity is in your garden. Cultivate it!
