Rustful Colours - 1st (tied)

Port Alice, BC

Upon a Google search, this is what I found as a meaning for Wabi-Sabi in Photography, and it is this meaning that I used when I photographed my image: "Wabi-sabi is a Japanese word roughly translating as 'imperfect aged beauty'. It is used to describe a particular philosophy that beauty can be found in the old, the everyday, the imperfect. And that everything is in a state of transition from or to nothingness. Wabi-sabi photography, then, can be said to be noticing and capturing this beauty, for others to see. Wabi-sabi in photography can be split into 3 main types - photography of the overlooked beauty, photography of worn and weathered beauty, and adding imperfections to staged images to make them seem more real."
