Weekword: Simplicity

This week (and perhaps in subsequent weeks as well), I've decided to participate in a creative photography challenge - Weekword. This week's word is simplicity, and here is my interpretation:

To create the image, I chose a subject that represents one of the simple joys in my everyday life: tea. I then used the Vignette app on my phone to capture a very low-resolution image, rather than opting for the dSLR and a tripod, etc. A simple backdrop of a white table and curtain finishes the look.

If you're interested in playing along, please visit the Silver Linings blog to get the details and sign up!


  1. So Cool! I had tea as an element in 'Simplicity' this week as well. I love the image of that tea bag. It would look great as a poster/framed print for a kitchen or diner! Nice work.
