Stripping it all back: simple, minimalist photography

As well as turning towards architectural photography I now find my self trying to simplify my photographs as much as possible.  I am trying to make simple, clean image, with a lot less post-processing.

I am really enjoying this challenge.  And it is a challenge; it is amazing how the urge to photograph 'the whole' can blind you to the more intimate shots available by spending just a little more time and searching out compositions

I saw this shot of two doors while walking around town.  I like the contrast of the colours and the brick work horizontals and the diagonals on the doors.

I have to admit, I really like the 'facing' image below.  The composition is so simple.  White, black and grey, and I just love the contrast between the black lines and the light. I remember taking the shot and thinking this is the sort images I want to make from now on.  Simple, clean, and minimal.
