Imagination at Play

My fascination with macro photography began in 2008. I love the idea of getting really close to my subject to take pictures. Several months ago, I played with the idea of creating an image from something that from far away is recognizable, but from close up becomes unrecognizable such as, a flower. I want to spark people’s imaginations when they look at my photos of flowers.

In this photo I imagined a leopard with pink spots, not the inside of a flower. So mundane. On the pedals of this tulip I imagined a fish swimming past me out to sea. On the other hand, the splash of light coming out of the top right corner could be the tail of the shooting star that was captured here. There are so many possibilities. So many stories can be created from one image. All you need is to open your mind and use your imagination.

  • I vaguely remember those first nights, Aidan. So fuzzy. I wish, again, that I had recorded them, like yo18u&2#7;ve done here. I do remember feeling like it would never end (it did) and have one particular memory of Henry, cocooned against me in my bed. Him. Me. Us. Hazy and gorgeous and sleepy and blissful. I think the harder memories have waned, as they do, retreating into the inky shadows.And yes, I think that we must remember the pain. In order to celebrate the opposites of it.
