I was out on a cloud covered Sunday morning, not finding anything interesting to photograph. It started to sprinkle, so I decided to call it a wash and head back. I turned around and almost stepped on this delicate little plant with an abstract figurative elements. I took way too many macro or close up shots to get the right composition. The winds picked up from the east and it had started to rain. Due to these conditions, each time I thought I had the perfect image, the winds moved the plant out of position in the frame of the camera. I had given up, thoroughly soaked by now, and started to walk away. Luckily I changed my mind and returned to shooting. This was the last shot I took and decided good enough for now. I had planned to return shooting another day under better conditions. It rained heavily for the next three days. When I returned, the plant had sprouted 1.5 in. (4 cm) and the center form had leafed out. This was the contemporary fine art photograph I was meant to capture.
"Releasing interpretations of incidental original unique melodic beginnings. Germinal singular obscure creations alone clearly arise frequently questioning charged structures. Eagerly recalling varied abstract playful drawings compelling a rhythmic state - Spontaneous forms slowly feeling a relaxation into indissoluble various expressive atmospheres, assisted by organic instances."
