11 Jul the dance
This image came straight out of the camera (SOOC), presenting itself just as it is, just as it should be. The solitary subject matter, in all it’s complexities is the main focus here and yet is it the relationship between the bloom and the bokeh that makes this image what it is. There is a poetry here in the balance of the two.
I am reminded of the Dance that author Harriet Lerner writes about in her book The Dance of Anger ,
“Defining a self or becoming one’s own person is a task that one ultimately does alone…Yet this lonely and challenging task cannot be accomplished in isolation. We can only accomplish it through our connectedness with others and the new learning about ourselves that our relationships provide.”
Wow. I love that.
