Introducing #mybeautifulsimplicity

I've finally jumped on the hashtag bandwagon! I've been umming and ahhhing about this for a while, but decided it was finally time to create and curate my own Instagram hashtag to share the kind of images I love. Allow me to introduce #mybeautifulsimplicity

So what's #mybeautifulsimplicity all about?

Well, I'm looking for beautifully simple images, full of space, especially white space. They should feel calm and be free from clutter and detail. Think simple backgrounds with minimal objects - perhaps a flatlay or a still life. Or seascapes and nature images where simplicity is the focus. Using a shallow depth of field can be a great way to create simplicity and blur out any distracting details. The same goes for a limited colour palette. It's not so much the subject matter, but the way it is presented.

To get things started, I've tagged some of my images to give a feel for what the hashtag is about. But I'd LOVE to see YOUR beautifully simple images. Please do join in by adding the hashtag #mybeautifulsimplicity to any images that you think are a good fit.

I'll share some favourites every couple of weeks on my Instagram account @zoepower and some monthly round-ups over here on my blog. I think it's such a lovely way to discover new accounts and inspiration.

Please do spread the word - and get tagging!
