Inspired ART?

Who was inspired by another woman.Photobucket

I decided to embark upon a week long photo challenge - to attempt to capture with a camera a little bit of MY world and actually portray it as fine, inspired art.

There is so much meaning behind a photo, a whole world exists and revolves around the one dimensional view as seen in a single photo. I wonder if I captured any of my world through the eyes of the camera lens? I think I'm beginning to.

I have a favorite quote on my photography blog, it goes like this -

I think the best pictures are often on the edges of any situation, I don't find photographing the situation nearly as interesting as photographing the edges.

~William Albert Allard, "The Photographic Essay"

There is a situation that is meaningful to me behind each one of these photos. I hope that I have captured the edges. That is a story for another blog and another day.

I decided to pick one of my selections below and frame it in a manner befitting of


Which one did I pick?

It is true, the orchid is what stood out to me. When I first saw the picture I wondered why it struck me like it did. I am sure everyone would have a different reason, but for me it seemed like the orchid was saying, "Notice me, notice me!" There it was in a room dwarfed by so many other beautiful things, but adding a beauty all its own, that in a hurry could have gone unnoticed. I wondered how many beautiful, but easy not to notice people I pass in my life who cry out, "Notice me, notice me!" and in my hurry, I don't. It made me want to slow down, and even stop and look more carefully at those I come into contact with each day.
