I love this photograph so much...not because it is one of my best sellers, but because it constantly reminds me that everything has beauty. The day this photograph was taken was a really hot day outside and I was way behind on my garden weeding. During that activity, I came across this little weed that was about 6" tall and had a funny looking cap of very small flowers on it. I wondered what it would do in my studio with ICM techniques applied to it. This was during the time when I was doing a lot of colored wire ICM photography.
So, I took it inside, hung it upside down, and this is what came out with the very first shot which is very unusual because normally it take about 500 ICM exposures to get a shot that I like. This one was meant to be, and it started me off on doing vegetation photography, a lot of which can be seeing in the earlier-numbered galleries on this website.
Fred and Ginger is one of those photos that have caused me to see the world a bit differently, and I hope it does the same for you. The only downside to this photo was that I got so involved in photographing plants and plant parts afterward that I forgot all about my task at hand on that hot summer day, and a week later the garden was truly a tangled mess of weeds! Oh well - just more photo opportunities!!!!
