Look at all the small details that surround you.
Take witness to every detail and how every small detail gives a meaning to "life".
Look at the flower.
Take notice every small detail and how every detail in the flower gives each on it's own unique piece of life.
ef·flo·res·cence - n.
Botany. A state or time of flowering; anthesis.
1. A gradual process of unfolding or developing.
2. The highest point; the culmination.
Without lifes small details, life is nothing. Everyday, it's all of the little things that make up who we are as living people. Human beings. The dew on the grass in the morning, the sun flare through the windshield, the tiny pebbles on the road, the old worn down posters on the telephone poles, the small details in life make up who we are. It's the difference of color in everyones hair, the way they talk, they way they move just a little differently, and yes, the way we all love to laugh. This is what this series (yes, a new series), made me think of. I went out and shot at this local flower shop for two hours for this series. I took many many many shots. Then, I started to notice every single tiny detal in all of the flowers. The colors, the textures, the hairs, the way they moved, the markings, and just the way they bloomed.
That is why this series is called "efflorescence". In celebration of life, the highest point, culmination, developing.
Celebrate all the small details in life, make life yours.

I hope this brings you motivation for your dreams.
Have a good 2004 with love!
