photography; each 10×8”

“In the warm months of 2020, I found more time to explore my backyard. I discovered something I had never before given sufficient attention. These photographs show the incredible engineering adaptations of the morning glory. The fuzzy fingers so visible upon a closer look, especially when backlit by a sunrise or sunset, found purchase on the post and rail and wire of the fence enclosing my backyard. The abundance and geometric proportion of these filaments form a beauty that rivals the regal blossom at the end of the vine. The structure of the bud and opening flower in # 2 & 3 are a photographer’s joy.”
