Lines of Growth, Lines of Shadow

Green is the color of Life and of Spring and Summer. This simple image made at the Naples Botanical Garden features patterns of  green tonality. The accordion texture of the fan palm creates repeated and predictable patterns, while the shadows of the sunlit overlapping fans are instantaneous and contrapuntal.

Does this splash of green brighten your wintery day?

Variations on a Theme

I continue to practice ICM (intentional camera movement) while I have easy access to sunsets over the Gulf. I love to see the sunset through this unique lens: the horizontal lines blurred to the point of near abstraction and the colors enhanced in vibrance and contrast. I was attracted to this image because of the criss-crossing lines of the waves. Comparing fiction and fact, painting and photography, I like to say, “you can’t make this stuff up.”¬†Compare this image to the sunset ICM image in my previous blog. How would you compare the mood of each?
