    These two groups of photos contain some of what that quote from Ansel Adams is suggesting. They were inspired by these words from the lovely book 'ikegana and other Japanese words to live by', by Mari Fujimoto, and attempt to merge ikebana with photography, rather than a simple representation of a flower arrangement.

    "Ikebana.. means 'giving life to flowers'.With the aim of capturing a beautiful and natural asymmetry, ikebana creates a space in which the delicate transience of the seasons can be visually acknowledged and appreciated.The constellation of flowers figures birth, growth, decay and reincarnation."

    Thanks Tai Shi and Jishin for these fab photos - Tai Shi, I love these slices of Americana, as someone who has never visited your country, they are fascinating to me. And Jishin, who doesn't absolutely love sunflowers, what an incredible sight.
    Thank you all for your kind words about my offerings.

    I did a quick pastel last week hoping to capture the glittering light on the river.

    Beautiful Judy! This reminds me of so many of the Impressionists whose art I just adore. Please share more when you can!

    Meitou how beautiful! I’m better with a camera. This is an iPhone 11 with a great camera, and I have to be careful not to fill up the memory. The camera you are showing your pastel with does a great job of doing justice to a gifted artist thank you for sharin. Here’s a photo made while I was walking today.IMG_5211.jpg
