I sit here in my sister’s home in Adrian Michigan, waiting for inspiration. I have been waiting a while. I thought that this week I would have something funny and charming to say. And I sit here waiting for it to happen.
I have been in Michigan since midday on Monday. I came after the peak of fall color but it has still been beyond beautiful. After nearly 8 years of GREEN, green, green in Brasil to have this week in COLOR has been absolute joy for me. If you have followed "’Flowers’ for very long, you know I love color in my photos. There have been times when we have used black & white photographs for the FSO and I am never happy with the results – I see in color, I feel in color, I want to take photos in color.
This week while trying to find patterns, I was almost overwhelmed with color. I have seen patterns everywhere – not any interesting plaids, or geometric patterns of any real interest (for me) but patterns of color and light.
Patterns in nature and those made by man: for me patterns in nature tend to be asymmetric and those designed by man symmetric. And, you guessed it, I like the natural, the asymmetric best.
