Every day I try to do something with a camera, so yesterday after my morning photo opportunity with Homewood was canceled due to thunder and rain, I needed to come up with something else. While I was pondering what that might be while sitting out front waiting for the next round of rain, I decided to photograph the inside of this flower. I hadn’t noticed the insect until after I looked at the image on the computer.
One of the reasons that I made this image was that I have been wondering how I might take some pictures of things around me that are different and I have been considering colorful abstracts of bits of things you might not recognize. After looking at the colors I am now also wondering if I might be able to construct some detail bits that bring some of Saul Leiter’s pictures to mind.
