the play

it just might be that nature, the flower, the light, and the shadows are at play here.  three images…

tides

often in the garden it is sway between light and shadow.  drifting one way and then the other.  subtle influences tilting one way and then the other.  reflecting the changes in other aspects of our lives.  making it mostly impossible to write merely about the garden.  and making it more impossible to understand the influences in other places.  three images…

light

step to the right.  this one had me a bit puzzled until i checked a few other pictures.  it must be Ouachita Beauty.  sprinkled with light and shadow.  one defines the other, they work well together.  three images…

bloom in the sun

too much sunlight can sometimes wash out the picture you are trying to share.  pictures are about sharing.  of course pictures without sunlight are not much good either.  so it is about finding that happy medium for the picture.  this flower is in the sun.  a bright sun.  and the sun is giving more to the picture than it takes away.  the generally muted colors of the flower help.  and i will not try to make out that i know all of the elements of light and composition.  i will just say that the light helps tell the story of this flower.  another light another flower and the story might not come out as well.  five images…

of light and dark

there are shadows and darkness in the garden.  they contrast the light.

morning

this is an early morning image in the garden.  the sunlight is just beginning to glow on the flower.  the flower is Bagana.  soon the sunlight will overpower the flower.  at least in terms of allowing the camera to be able to capture the image.   just not quite yet.  three images…

absence

the absence of somethings defines the other.  the absence of light defines dark.  the absence of heat defines cold.  the absence of wet is dry.  the absence of wind defines calm.  other times what we might consider two opposites actually have nothing to do with one another.  the absence of love is not hate.  hate is entirely something else.   and once you begin to really understand love it becomes clear that there is no room for hate.  the absence of flower ?  that would be an empty moment that is to be corrected.  two images…
