Don't leave me
Sometimes to me the most interesting part of doing art is the process. I know this sounds so post-modern. But I am not saying that the process is the most important... just saying it is sometimes more fulfilling. I think that the end results and the process are equally important. I know that at times I tend to deliberate on things without regards to the end result. I must be post-modern in my thinking. But what is wrong with that?
I created the image above with the intention that I was going to process it to look the way it did. I am very satisfied with the final outcome. It was so close to what I have pre-visualized. Before shooting, what I saw was the budding leaves that were overshadowed by colorful bloom surrounding them. The budding leaves have no chance to compete with their glory. Yet, I identified with the leaves. Insignificant to many yet at that one moment I felt like I connected.
