The hard drives of images, which I so carefully organized last year, have become really messy. As I take shot after shot of the garden I just keep dumping them into one file and now there are close to 1000 images in the file. What great about having them all together is seeing patterns, and preoccupations. I am fascinated by the shapes of all this growth in the garden, the underlying patterns of the plants, the shapes of their leaves, seeds and petals. A friend is coming down this weekend and I will be able to ask him about a micro or maybe that is a macro lens for the camera. I can't get as close as I want, as you can see below. It's the fuzzy bits of pistols and stamens that I want to capture. The name of this little gem is Trancendtia, commonly known as Spider Wort.
