Just enough

Starting the Beyond Layers with Kim Klassen this week. It’s been an amazing start to a new creative journey. Introducing ourselves to everyone from all parts of the world, and sharing our ‘creative’ stories, our journey of how and why we’ve arrived at this point and continue to travel and weave on life’s experiences. With no boundaries and limits we were to write our own individual creative story, honest and from within, listening to our deeper voice, however this little bird has still a few ruffled feathers, and even though my voice is small and quiet for now, in time will sing a beautiful song.

This week… our first photographic challenge was with an image…say more…with less.

Less is more.

~Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Less colour enhancing in our photo’s, more natural tones, more light and creativity showing the viewer a more simplistic image, and captivate them in a moment of wonder.

These cotton pods have an interesting adventure story on their own. Travelling along a rural road along the fence line I could see these wonderful pods, full of natural textures screaming at me to photograph them. Enhancing a dry, harsh and hot rural backdrop, my eye still discovered natural beauty to capture behind the lens.

Have a great day…Yvette x


  1. Your seed pods (sorry cotton pods), are simply gorgeous!! As are your edits… stunning.

    Wish I could’ve taken this class – maybe next time! It’s great that you are enjoying it so much and I look forward to seeing your progress… =)

    • It’s a whole lot of learning and it’s hard to simplify…I think these pics are still too ‘busy’…simplify!….

    • I really did some thinking on these ones…as I had taken sooo many photo’s of these intriguing pods.Truly natural beauty! x

    • They are full of different textures hard and soft…the prongs around the pod are rigid and spikey, while inside are soft as cotton!

  2. I have no doubt, Yvette, that you will sing with a clear voice and your wings spread. Cocooning is, in itself, a remarkable adventure, and reemerging is extraordinary. You are becoming one beautiful butterfly!!
