Simple

The 1848 Quaker song Simple Gifts begins with the words “‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free”. The words are a good reminder to photographers that simple (as in subject matter) and free (as in free from self-imposed constraints) can be worthy photos. These photos’ captions describe the simple subject matter, though the photos below required standing on a chair, waiting for a drip, getting close, and being ready in that order. Hope you have learned the gift of simple and free.

  1. The boy and toad one is so precious. All are really fun.

  2. Well, we could wish it was Quaker. Give credit to the Shakers, though. They wrote a lot of lovely music, and it’s worth discovering.

    • You are right. My bad. The Shakers have written many beautiful songs. Their religious community has become very small and is in danger of dying. That would be a great loss.
