great find: Elena Volkova's scapes

I know from experience that balancing whites and grays are very difficult. Simple photographs like these are the among the most difficult to execute.

Love the sort of barely there almost nothingness quality of these. As you said, very hard to capture!

So slight as to be barely noticed... but what a conversation piece!

Wow, I love these. Thanks for sharing. I want to fill a wall with these and look at them all day.
