My first garden photo
About twenty years ago, faced with the possibility of having my childhood home sold, I began to document the glory of our garden. For over a year I painstakingly photographed and researched each and every flower, shrub, and tree that made up the beautiful landscape that existed In Gloria's Garden. We never sold the house, but a photographer blossomed.
My photographs aim to capture the scenes in nature that often go overlooked. So much of our time is spent looking straight ahead that the beauty around us is overlooked. I spend my time looking up, looking around, and looking down. We see much more when we take the time to bend over or kneel down. A different perspective comes into view. This is what my photography hopes to capture. I do not want to capture what I and everyone else can see; I want to capture that which we must make an effort to see... that is what makes it all worthwhile.
