Side by Side

Macro, Monochrome
Haiku

As someone who had to mow the lawn on a weekly schedule during the grass growing days, I hated dandelions. I never put the effort into “weed” control like my neighbor so my yard would eventually invade his, much to his chagrin. But the moment I started “seeing” the world around me as I began this journey with photography, the dandelion has been a constant and sought after subject.

I have photographed dandelions in every stage of their life. One of my favorites has been hanging on my wall for years (check out Dandie from this post back in April 2016, Grass). When I first moved into my current apartment I’m sure my neighbors wondered about the guy on his stomach out in the grass pointing his camera at the weeds.

I’ll continue exploring the dandelion. I am fascinated by its detail and structure. I wish to never lose my fascination with this weed

Take Flight

Side by side they wait
Wind to free their hearts one dream
New journeys take flight

  1. Need a love button. My neighbors know I’m certifiably crazy. But one neighbor showed up at my door this week with his camera asking me to show him how to use it. He’s seen me crawling around my yard with mine.
