I am drawn constantly to flowers. But even though their colours are so vibrant I still prefer to see them in black and white. Maybe that is how life is, black and white. I continue with my dedication to the loss of my beloved dog by dedicating these photographs to her and the happiness she brought to life. Some people may think it strange to love an animal so much and to mourn its loss so greatly. But animals can enrich someones life greatly. They learn us so much about emotions and how to be kind to others. And their dedication to their owners is immense.
Getting closer to what I want to achieve with my new project. I am continually experimenting and thinking about art in Nature. This is better then my last photographs. The material is tighter on the trunk which gives the tree its definition. I am still undecided about whether to keep colour or change to black and white. The one below shows the difference it makes to the photograph. You lose the leaves due to the colour disappearing. I wouldn’t want to keep the colour of the leaves in either as the only three defining colours in the project will be yellow, red and blue. And only then these colours will be the addition to Nature’s own colours. The three colours are important due to the connection to Japan.
