  1. Oh, this is just fabulous. It’s divine, it’s Otherworldly and Amazing. You are Masterful with the poignant, close-ups of plants and… things.

    • Around my house this morning, I said, uncontemplatively, “I might be back to leaves and sticks.”

      • You do it all very well, but you have this unique connection with leaves and sticks. You can take that which to most people is invisible, and raise it to a level of high art. These two leaf images I, at first, thought were drawings!! Very beautiful and powerful images. Poignant..

        • Maybe I need to stop resisting the lure of yard waste.

          • LOL, no. Yard waste is great stuff!

        • Still looking for the bridge between that and this: https://500px.com/photo/128969093/katharine-by-rpdpod?ctx_page=1&from=user&user_id=245322

          • Ahhhh…yes. I understand completely. So ask yourself, what was your state of mind when you shot her? And when you shot the leaves?

          • Certainly not as restful. Mmmm. I wonder how to get myself in the same state. It seems intrinsically linked to the state of mind of my interlocutor.

          • That’s it. It always echoes back to the state of mind you are in. It goes through your “filter”, and depending upon your state of mind, what is going on in your life, etc., it will have an affect upon the image that you shoot. I know this first-hand. Like, my work in the past year sucks. It just does and I know it. I can’t do my best work right now due to intense personal issues going on in the background (which have nothing to do with my kid going to college).

            I know my work will shift back again, but for now, when I go to shoot, I know that it’s not what it could be if I were more relaxed.

          • That’s rough. If I had karma to share, I would. Or rather, if I have karma to share, I have.

          • It’s not that strife and difficulties always produce crap, and actually, my above statement isn’t completely true. There have been quite a few moments where I’ve made images that shocked even me, particularly in cemeteries. However, cemeteries have become my refuge of late.

            I think, as a science experiment, go back to the images you like the best, and try to remember what that day was like, what was going on in your life, your health, etc. And then do the same with the images you aren’t so happy with.

          • I can remember the moment of most of my better images, but not what the day was like, apart from that moment.
