Yesterday, I was at the mall noticed heaps of people wondering around, I did the same thing window shopping, looking around, till I realized I cant seemed to find what I'm there for( and that's normal),went to the restroom and saw this huge mirror surrounded by pale black wall and immediately my eyes was redirected to that piece of metal faucet.I was staring at it for maybe a minute or so, then I remembered a dear friend of mine and a great photographer Mike Browne taught me about NEGATIVE SPACE,it tells about the space around and between the subject(s) of an image, show off the subject a little better instead of filling the whole frame.
Focusing on what matters most, unclutter things in our mind, have a little air to breath and a little blank space.Having that negative space sometimes is what we need to see things in different perspective
So what does this gotta do with me at the mall? I uncluttered my mind and thought about why I'm there instead of thinking to get the latest Primadonna shoes, Instead of me picturing so many things, instead me thinking of bills to pay,how to get a new gear,worry about if it will rain, instead of watching other peoples clothing and how they carry their bags.
Sure we need to think about those invoice and debts, but those will not change, it's always been there for as long as I can remember, being said I found myself at my favorite coffee shop, having a nice chocolate eclair, simply having negative space...seems like negative space is not so negative after all.
So in this busy world, we're trying to catch up on so many things, take a quick break...Maybe all you need a little negative space.
