Statement

Despite so many subjects of interest, nothing inspires more or do I find as gratifying than photographing flowers! Shooting flowers allows me to reconnect with the power of nature in one of its most sublime forms. 

As is the case with any photo I take, often I must be still and await the subjects' acknowledgement. Doing so creates a relationship of commonality necessary before attempting to capture its essence. Then like a honeybee, I explore going deep inside seeking what is not readily seen but there non-the-less and then sharing with others a visual honey. 

Although I have used other camera formats in other areas of photography, I find working within the confines of a point & shoot allows for a certain freedom, spontaneity and joy in the happen-stance of that moment along with a good dose of patients for just the right pattern of leaves, light, or petals, etc. 

Enjoy and thank you!
