Zen Moments - 08


A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio.
I love closeups of flowers where they turn from just pretty flowers
to form and color!
I am submitting a series of similar photos
to a gallery in the area for possible representation.
They loved my Poppy Dream winning photo and asked for more,
so off goes a CD this week!
Wish me luck!!

A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio.
This one is more of a challenge picture to what is traditionally considered Zen.

Now just have to write that pesky Artist Statement... :)

A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio. 
Another object arrangement or Ikebana-like photograph.
I have ordered my black mats for the portfolio review.
They should arrive by the end of the week and I will be prepping for the portfolio events next week.
One is an open event for the public to view all the portfolios.
The second event falls the next night where we choose reviewers to work with: 
15 minutes per reviewer to get feedback on our body of work, 
we'll be talking to multiple reviewers that night. 

Still need to get that artist statement written, as well!

A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio. 
A more traditional Zen photograph.
I just loved catching the raindrops on the leaf and the stem coming at you in 3D.
Lots to meditate on in this one!

Here is another piece from my Zen Moments portfolio. 
This one is less of a traditional Zen style of photography. 
It is one I am putting into my portfolio to see if people think it falls under Zen or not. 
What do you think?

Here is another piece from my Zen Moments portfolio. 
This one is a more traditional object arrangement piece. 
It also has a bit of an Ikebana feel to it as well, at least that was a comment by one viewer. :)

Zen Moments - 01


I am working on a new portfolio. I have until the last week of September to decide between "Behind the Scenes" and this new one, "Zen Moments." I have really been noticing these Zen Moments at the Houston Arboretum, so decided to keep playing with them to see if a portfolio might manifest!

I shared this with my photo group as part of a monthly print competition, with last month's subject being "odd numbers." This one was entered for the 7 leaves. Most people thought it was too centered and too close-up on the leaf itself. I, of course, disagreed!  I really liked the back light from the morning sun. What do you think?
