I have a fascination for Squares and they are my favorite Minimalism Subject. Whenever I find them, I shoot them, no matter what. :)

The Hollow Square that you see above, is from a fest that I went to. This is a wall just outside the main building. They were doing some last minute touch-ups before the fest. I was lucky enough to visit the place just 2 days before the inauguration, otherwise this wall would have been a multi-colored one. 


If you notice, I did not edit the photograph that much. I kept it a little Dull and Flat on purpose, as that is what I wanted to communicate here. 

Dull and Flat is sometimes the Mood that I am into, when I sit down and think about Life. 

Only yesterday, I had posted a status on my Facebook Timeline,  "Life is a square, with unequal sides." 
 
Haha, well that is about Life, but the Square above has equal sides. 

Maybe, those equal sides is what I am searching for in my life. 


With that honest thought, lets take a quick look at the Minimalism Classification


  • The photo falls under Minimalism as Simple Geometry Category of Minimalism.

     
  • The basic geometry shape obviously being the Square.

     
  • The Texture on the wall, pulls up dramatically the aesthetics of the Photograph.

     
  • Also note, that the color palette is monochromatic, i.e. just the browns. 


All in all, great ingredients for a Simple Minimalist Photograph !
