i am simpleminded

I spent a couple minutes looking through the mono website I mentioned in a previous post. In their About section they had a headline that said the future belongs to the simpleminded. They go on to explain (simply) that they believe simpler is better. I've always bought into that idea wholeheartedly. I love creative executions that are simple and clean and clever and . . . perfect. That's the way a approach photography. The more I can take away from a scene, the better. Maybe I'm just simpleminded.

I had to go back through the archives for a photo today and ran across these three simple photos. Nothing fancy. No spectacular light. Just a simple wall. That makes me photo happy.

From one simpleminded guy to another, I couldn't agree more.

Several years ago, I was involved in a newspaper redesign with the famous Mario Garcia. He said, "simplicity is back in style." My replay was, "when did it ever go out of style?"

It's good to know my fave photo guys value simplemindedness, too. Now, lets add some Free State beer and good conversation - and our simple pleasures will be complete.

Name the day, bud, and I'll be there. Just wait 'til I'm back from Canada on March 2. I'm thirsty already...
