When the leaf speaks, I listen.


Blasting Open
Going through old photos, I found a neon sign that said “Open.” It pulled me into playing … but it went no where so I moved on.
 
Then there was this wonderful leaf … a coleus I believe … with an incredible spiral. Okay, I’ll play with that and see how far I can take one image. Layers later it was turning into something but it demanded a playmate, so I tossed another image into the mix. Ah ha, now it was really getting interesting.

More layers and all of a sudden “Open” (the sign) wanted to be part of it and then wound up blasting an “opening” (duh!) into the whole concoction.

So that’s how it goes. Perhaps I should just call myself a ring master.

  1. Things aren't always what they seem. And other times, they're exactly that and more. Gorgeous coleus. Wow.

  2. You ARE a ringmaster, of course-- an excellent image for your artist self, as you direct the traveling company of your photos and your words and all the aspects of your omnicurious self

  3. Spirals in nature are so beautiful and with the open sign on it makes for a clever juxtaposition. The coleus is gorgeous.
