Cherry Blossom

“Still—in a way—nobody sees a flower—really—it is so small—we haven’t time—and to see takes time…”

— Georgia O’Keeffe

Often my days are hurried. When I remind myself to slow down, my gaze observes what is around me. I see the grace of nature that is otherwise is glossed over. My goal with my Flora Series is to capture particular instants when nature takes on a subtle abstraction. In these photographs the subjects are fragile and temporary, yet they are captured in timeless stages. As the leaf or blossom moves in the wind and blurs, I maintain a glimmer of focus while the background softens, becoming a wash of color.
