March 27, 2019 … Wysiwyg is dead, but I am not

Dear friends and readers, I have been overwhelmed by the flood of very kind messages following the closure of WYSIWYGPurple, and I am very grateful for all the kind words.

Though the blog remains dead, I have replaced it with a portfolio using Adobe’s Portfolio tool. This is more of a collection of galleries  with the occasional unscheduled essay from me. I expect the galleries will be updated fairly regularly so for those of you who were so kind in your praise of my images, there is still access to what I hope is some of my best and favourite work.

You can find the new enterprise here:

Warmest wishes to you all.


About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.

    I have just found your site – love it and put it in “favourites”. I have been having a discussion with fellow photographers (all amateurs) as to what constitutes a “simplicity” image. We all have different ideas and I wondered if you could give us some clarity on this please.
    Thanks so much

    • Hello Irene I can give you my interpretation but my opinion is no more valid than yours or that of anyone else. I believe an image possesses simplicity when it has one clear and unambiguous subject, and little or no distraction in the background. Often a simple image will have lots of room around the subject. The simplicity often extends to an uncomplicated set of colours. Generally speaking you will know an image with simplicity when you see it. It’s the kind of image I would like to make more of 🙂
