Sunset Weeds, The Sea Ranch, California, January 2017
Printed on 8x10 matte archival fine art paper.
Edition of 10
I was there to write, but every morning and evening I took a long walk. Rain or shine. That evening was shine. The sun was luminous as it set over the Pacific. I watched it go down. As I turned to walk back home, I saw a field of these huge empty stalks. They were silhouetted in the sunlight. They were sculptural and striking. I began photographing them with my iPhone, when suddenly it came to me to "take a portrait" of them. So, that's what I did. I've been "taking portraits" of flowers ever since. Because, let's face it, what is more portrait-worthy than the beauty of Nature's creations?
Of course I know that many people would consider these weeds. But to me, they are silhouettes of the Divine. That's why the text in this image is all about the lessons we can all learn "weeds" -- their beauty, their necessity, their hardiness, their misunderstood status. Because really, aren't we all wild and wonderful weeds?
