wabi sabi

Posted by Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 6 October 2017 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

A camera club I belong to had a picnic lunch followed by a photo scavenger hunt. The target were pretty general, but still provided an excuse to look around and point our cameras.

"wabi sabi" is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.[2] The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

The crumpled leaves are a certain beauty in their decay. A fine, detailed shot of them.

There is something really attractive about decomposition.

I like this image, but I don't think the title "wabi sabi" is suitable for the image.
