Yugen - and there are dreams within dreams

By IsabelC      
I hope you are all well? Like many people who needed to keep themselves and their minds busy in these strange times I started a little project. It is a project that formed itself around the Japanese concept of Yugen (simplicity, grace, depth, mystery) and I took all the images I am going to share with you within walking distance of my home. All effects you see are created by the light, the colours of nature as well as my lens choice. Little to no processing was done to keep it simple. I hope that in the end I will have enough images to make another hand-made book Smile

Fantastic idea Isabel and you have created a beautiful image. It has a fairytale feel about it, and the more I look at it I can imagine some little fairies dancing about within the scene. Very charming indeed.

Just shows what can be achieved with minimal 'interference' after the fact, and the eye and imagination to spot the right subjects - oh yes, and the right lens, of course.Smile

Perfection. As usual...
What a great idea. All the more challenging because you have decided to limit your processing. Very much looking forward to seeing more of your shots. I like the fairy tale quality of this one.

Thank you all so very much, especially for your kind comments and those lovely awards by John and James which I cherish Smile
I have already a nice little collection of images ready to share...so you might all get bored in the end 😂

@ Dave: Get Peter out to play, No.1 Wink

@Angela: It was like a fairytale Grin so I am sure there are some in there...

@Malc: I am trying my best and in this case the Large Format vintage soft focus lens helped to detect the fairies Wink

@ James: Lens bubbles Wink

@smartphotography: I often find that limitations help me a lot, I actually enjoy setting them Smile Thanks so much.

Hi Isabel Smile I absolutely love this ... I feel like I could sink into it for ever, and never be bored! Masterful, as is usual with your imagery.

Thank you so much...I thought it was probably too quiet for most people, too simple but the feedback is really nice and I love it Wink

Nope, never too simple Smile Your work illustrates that pretty much perfectly, in my eyes. We live such busy lives and now, with the past year and all it's brought, having the beauty of simplicity and quietness seems like a luxury. This image does that for me ... it helps to quiet the mind, the stresses and strains, and reminds me that no matter what else is happening, if we use our eyes to truly see, rather than just look, we find the answers in such beautiful tranquillity as you've given us in this image Smile
