"Wabi-Sabi" PENTAX Main Challenge
Challenge has finished
Wabi-Sabi in it's barest essence is the Japanese art of finding beauty in things imperfect whether in nature or manmade. Examples, an old handmade vase that shows it's pitt marks and scratches due to age, usage and handmade imperfections rather than one that is mass produced shiny and new. An outdoor furniture piece that shows it's passage of time from usage and weather. Leaves at the end of their cycle discoloured and scattered randomly on the ground. A fallen tree log that has probably layed there for a few years and is covered in moss/fungi etc... Perhaps the closest word in the English language to Wabi-Sabi is "Rustic" although this is only a small part of the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic. Important note: please disregard "Capture Date" rules. Photos MUST be taken during the month of March 2010.
