These photographs were taken at Garry Point but part of me wanted to title this post: Negative Space Sunday.
In art, negative space refers to the space that surrounds a subject in an image. It emphasizes the intended subject, taking away distraction from the viewer. It can become the subject itself as it adds a dramatic effect to an otherwise simple focus point. Negative space is one element of composition.
I love negative space and not just in photography. I love real life negative space: the deep blue sea, an endless sky, limitless open space. I breathe deeper as if negative space is actually a giant invisible vacuum that takes away all my thoughts. All that’s left is the soothing calm of nothingness.
That day in Garry Point was a “Negative Space Sunday”.
