I photograph natural forms because I find it fulfilling. They stimulate in me a wide range of emotions, and I find them neither limited nor limiting. They resonate with the themes of great art, and with the rhythms of life itself. They achieve their impact with simplicity and without pretension; the appropriate response is humility. They have been here a long time, have seen and survived much. One can feel only optimistic in their presence.

inner parts of the flower are collecting light. Looking into this light through the translucent petals gives the delicate, fragile, tremulous edge across the front of the image.
