A Minimalist Photo of the side portion of a hut shaped house green in color.

This shot I took while I was on a phone call with my friend Vivek. He had just returned home after watching the movie Interstellar and he got fascinated by it. I do not watch movies as such, probably 1 a year or maybe not even that, but his talks made sense and I believe, so did the movie. I do watch shows on discovery science like "Through the wormhole" by Morgan Freeman. I have a keen interest in outer space and the mysteries of the universe. I am a lazy photographer and I took this shot one handed with the camera raised above my head. That talk of the wormholes and life after death, well maybe this shot captured some essence of that. For me each Minimalist Photo has a hidden message in it. I am almost certain that this shot came straight out of my sub-conscious mind as my conscious mind was busy talking to my friend on the phone.


The photo falls under the Parts of the Whole Minimalism category. This is the side portion of a green hut-shaped house. On the bottom right, the dark wall belongs to a house just near it. So I have taken two parts, of two houses plus a part of the blue sky in the background to compose this image.

This explains why this Minimalist Photo is Minimalism as Parts of the Whole. The parts of the houses have been interpreted as lines going in various directions. The unique color palette enhances the overall composition.
