A photo I see as a parallel to life itself, and my own in particular;  A fuzzy past, an unclear future, with a very narrow depth-of-field relative to true vision and understanding.  This should not be interpreted as a negative, for it is not.  It is extremely positive, and realistic.  There was a point when the future was ‘certain’. Then wisdom struck, experiences occurred, and things were not what they seemed, what they would become.  Things are great now.  Challenges never cease.  The future ain’t what it used to be.  That’s probably a good thing. 🙂



I love playing with depth-of-field.  I often shoot wide open.

The Calla Lily is my favorite flower…by far.  I shoot them a lot.  In this shoot I decided to juxtapose the calla with something that has nothing to do with it and offers massive contrast.  It is laying on a bed of coal.
