weekly photo challenge: minimalist

This weeks challenge is  “Minimalist”  It should “illustrate a moment in time, or an artistic perspective, with simplicity and grace.”

I decided to work on a photo which for me just didn’t work as it stood. The original photo is below, however I prefer the cropped version above, focussing on the terracotta roof tiles. I love the repetitive pattern though in fact each tile is completely different.

The roof is part of an old mill, down on the Doulon river just outside our village of Vals le Chastel. Its unoccupied now, except for once this year when an elderly couple stayed in part of the mill for a couple of days. The son of the original owners maybe?

    I enjoyed seeing where the photo originated. When I first saw it, I thought it was a type of tart with pieces of chocolate arranged on top. 🙂 That would have been good, too.
