Natural Abstractions

Pay attention / Be astonished / Tell about it. ~ Mary Oliver

When I walk along my favorite trails in the woods or along a riverbank, when I truly   pay close attention to my surroundings, I am continuouslyastonishedby Nature’s creations. Nature is full of abstractions and playful surprises. While an object itself – tree, rock, flower -- may be a thing of beauty, observing it as a form, shape, color or line provides insights that extend beyond its identity as a mere object.  In these photographs, I express my admiration for Nature in a way that many people rarely notice. Take a walk with me through this exhibit.  Enjoy the details, the colors, the shapes that create the most wonderful masterpieces that Nature has to offer.  Let these images tellyou what I love about Nature’s abstractions.
