I have no idea what this flower is, but I like the feeling of light that seems to emanate from it. I also like what one critic wrote about the photograph: The finger of nature, reaching toward the infinite, and emphasized by Ronile’s use of contrasting colors, alludes to man’s desire to harness the spiritual force of the material world.

Computer problems

My computer foiled my best intentions to post regularly. It seems that it had a virus, and my incredible technician had to wipe everything off my C drive. By coincidence, cousin Elinor had similar problems. I now have access to everything on the computer, so I'll post an incredible photo tomorrow. Promise.

I overexposed the scene by several stops so that the light really overwhelms this image of cattails. I think it's ethereal and beautiful. I shot another version that's even more simplified. I love them both. Which do you like best?

True to my promise, I'm updating my blog.
I'm fascinated by bursts of light and sun flare in my photographs, especially when light overexposes and washes out part of the image. One enthusiastic critic recently wrote, "The artist captures the emanation of sunlight through the arboreal landscape, using it to represent the bursting through of conscious awareness."

Sphere of Luminosity

I know I haven't posted in a long, long time, but I'll try to be more active. At least cousin Elinor has been active in promoting my work in the United States. She's lectured about my photography to many photography clubs, including an annual conference of the New England Council of Camera Clubs. I'm pleased that her presentations have been enthusiastically received.
This photograph certainly gained a lot of attention. I think it would emphasize the feeling of light if I have it printed on silver metallic paper, so that's what I'm going to do.
