“A formally harmonious product needs no decoration; it should be elevated through pure form.” Ferdinand Porsche

The most lasting and pure gladness comes to me from my gardens. Lillie Langtry
Without touching my subject I want to come to the moment when, through pure concentration of seeing, the composed picture becomes more made than taken. Without a descriptive caption to justify its existence, it will speak for itself – less descriptive, more creative; less informative, more suggestive – less prose, more poetry. Ernst Haas

For this photo challenge exercise on the word – PURE -, what came to mind were some early morning shots I took of blooms in my garden, and the view of the Hudson River from Hudson Park. I love the early morning hours because, normally, only the birds are stirring, and all the sounds and movement that become our lot, as the day progresses, are still asleep. It is a pure and perfect time to meditate on the beauty of nature and express gratitude for another day of life.

As I mentioned above, the pictures I shared for this exercise were taken very early in the morning; by the Hudson River looking north and then south, and in my garden. I love walking through my garden a day after a heavy rainfall. Why? Because everything in the garden shimmers and glows as if dusted by golden raindrops; all of it looks quite pure… pristine comes to mind for me.What does your early morning look like? What comes to mind when you think of pure?

Weekly Photo Challenge: PURE – Early morning garden blooms glistening in the yard.

The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural… The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white. Wassily Kandinsky

I take a daily walk early in the morning and everything about the river at that time is pure, quiet, and pristine. I also love walking through my garden a day after a rainfall. One day, I grabbed my camera and walked around the yard, taking photos of the different blooms in the garden. The result are the photos above. I hope you like them. What does your early morning look like? What comes to mind when you think of pure?

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Photo Challenge: PURE  For this week’s challenge, share a photo of something pure — it can be a person, an object, or a moment. “Pure” can convey wholesomeness, something undiluted, or simplicity. We can’t wait to see your interpretation.
