For me it's not always about what's there but what is not there too. I adore this photo which I took off the coast of Coromandel.
Not for what is there but for what is not there.
I love the wide expanse, the isolation, how the water looks like silk, how the sky and sea blend into one and the sense of possibility with the tiny island in the distance.
I fell in love with this photo and wanted to print it as a canvas but I was a little scared that it didn't have 'enough in it'.
I decided not only to go with it but I also got it printed as an enormous canvas!
It arrived today and I was almost too scared to open it but when I finally pulled off the layers of brown paper it was well worth it...
On an empty wall it looks like a window out to sea. An empty space to plan a journey.
Even my 5 year old (who is normally uninspired by most art) has made up stories about what may be on and past the horizon.
So the moral of my story... Don't be scared of space, of loving what you love and printing it large!
