The Instant Art of Instant Minimalist Art: Grey Series, 31 October 2014 (Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist)

Standard

Good Morning:

Have you ever visited the Beinecke Library Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University? The thing has no windows. Zero. Instead, the Library uses thin translucent sheets of marble to permit some light to enter the interior whilst protecting the books, manuscripts and papers from direct sunlight. Good thing, too: they have on permanent display not one but two copies of Audubon’s Birds of America.

You might sometimes see that same translucent light in San Francisco.

Both shots taken with my iPhone 4. I felt tempted to edit out the telephone wires in the first photo, but in retrospect they seem to aid the composition. Incidentally, a simple search of “instant art of instant minimalist art” on my blog will yield a large number of blogposts and photos, so this week’s Challenge will prove most fun. I hope you have fun with this week’s Challenge, too.
