Drops of beauty

In nature – as in photography – even the smallest details

Can be a great subject.

Monochrome copy

Take the simple raindrop

As it adorns late autumn plants,

Droplets copy

Turns leaves

Into tiny cups of water

Cups of water

And see how it frames and enhances

A lilac-petalled beauty.

    The first image, the black, the white: no Prophets, no Messiahs, no mystic orators, could ever serve up a more inspiring image as this. The line, the twist, the glance upward -stone Buddhas are blushing in gardens everywhere.
