Sunday Post: A SIMPLE STORY OF…

…your making.  Jake’s Weekly Photo Challenge subject  is “Simplicity”.

The simplicity here isn’t necessarily in the form or content, but in the context. The context seems to be a story that weaves in and out of everyday settings at home and beyond. It’s a simple story that I invite you to narrate.

Shells probably from India; moon shells from East Coast beaches;  bed in a small cottage in Connecticut; cream pitcher made in 1998 and signed HP; boats in New York Harbor; curled skunk cabbage leaf at Mercer Slough, Bellevue, WA; aprons at Hains House, a Baking School and B&B in Olympia, WA;  Tateuchi Viewing Pavilion at Bellevue Botanical Garden, Bellevue, WA; aloe leaf in the Volunteer Park Conservatory, Seattle, WA; the flowers are Forget-me-nots.

    • Well, if you ever get to the Pacific northwest you could not do better then to spend time at Pat’s farm – Hains House – where this was taken. She will welcome you and feed you amazing things from her huge wood-fired outdoor oven, and then you can go off and explore the coast or Mt. Rainier. I’m glad you like the photo – I was annoyed with that down jacket, and it took forever to get the lighting right because I didn’t pay close attention to what I was doing at the time – I’m a quick shooter, and it shows.

  2. Ah, make a recommendation for eating or birding and you’ll sucker me in every time, thanks!
    I didn’t really even notice the coat, that’s how enamored I was with the aprons! I think the lighting is perfect.

  3. The use of sepias, gentle greys and soft focus suggests memories of the past – probably memories associated with someone who sailed away. The stronger colours used in the eighth picture suggest that the memories have been evoked by a return to a once familiar room. The final two pictures comprise an interesting pairing: the aloe, associated with bitterness, and the forget-me-not. Perhaps this is a clue to the nature of the relationship (and parting) between the narrator and the person who sailed away.

  4. A well-conceived photograph truly generates a strong narrative. Each frame suggests a different story, and each interpreter responds according to their life experiences. Nicely done–each of the images pitches my thoughts.
