Looking through Amazon's book collection on the subject. Found a quote which I can help us better undestand the topic at hand

"wabi sabi is the beauty of things impermanent, imperfect and incomplete. I feel that this leaf illustrates this principle perfectly"
//www.amazon.com/Wabi-Sabi-Artists-Designers-Poets-Philosophers/dp/1880656124

Looking through some of the other books and their covers helps as well.

Just for example, some of the images I've taken which may fit the theme? If someone disagrees please say so ;)

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/565484.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/565484.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/427764.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/427764.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

And another shot from Irene

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/706/120/550346.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/706/120/550346.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

One from Mpeters
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/609/120/446431.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/609/120/446431.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Looking at these samples, we might have another high quality challenge in our hands. Can't wait :)

Darn, I wish I could enter this one, but I took it a couple of months ago. There's something about this shot that I really like and I think it fits the challenge.

Wendy. Yes, I think your shot would fit in well.

Stumbled upon a good read WHAT IS WABI-SABI?

This should be interesting but I'm afraid there are lots of people with their own ideas, so one man's DNMC may be another man's perfect 10. I had one shot entered but decided that it wasn't ordinary enough, although in some respects, it actually fit the "wabi sabi" definition more than what I have now. But again, this is quite an esoteric idea, so I hope people will open their minds as well as their eyes, when voting.

GOOD LUCK everyone!!

I'm in. I expect to get hugely low scores from all the people who do not agree with me. I'm hoping to stay above a 3. But I'm in. And looking forward to voting on the other entries.

I think there will be a lot of good subject potential for this. I was afraid my entry might be considered a shoehorn, but after seeing the preceding examples and the Wikipedia definition of Wabi-Sabi, It should fit right in.

<--- crosses fingers. I am in!
12/18/2007 10:51:06 PM · #37
Me too...but I hate my photo.....I hope others don't share my opinion... :)

I'm so second guessing myself. I have about 5 shots of different subjects that I think would work. YIKES - I need to quit doing this.

I'm still shuttering from the Tooth Fairy....
