London Wakes Up

“To Every Thing There is a Season”. I made this series of photographs with my iPhone as London turned it’s pale cheek toward the emerging Sun!  A few thoughts:

“Before I ever knew what an ‘art practice’ was, NATURE was teaching me about Beauty. As a child, I tried to make perfume from lilacs, I had forts tucked into the cattails, I smelled irises to conjure up grape bubble gum, I picked wild roses along the railroad tracks. As an Artist, Nature is my inspiration, my church, and my guide. One of my practices is intuitive observation and in the spirit of “the best camera is the one you have with you” this set of images came about during my wanderings in this vast metropolis during the quiet Spring holiday. Many people are vacationing elsewhere, away from the pressures of city life, dull concrete and cranes. Meanwhile, Nature makes her voice heard in unlikely alleys and along the city sidewalks, gently turning the circle of life with the colour, power and beauty of Rebirth.” 

Happy Spring, Happy Earth Day. Turn Turn Turn.
