There’s something about blues and browns together…
These images are all of the same kind of seed heads I have been exploring in the previous 2 posts, but in the following 2 images (sepia tones) I am looking at them in a different way.
These 2 are mirror reflections, and it seems to me the feathers are flying here. I hesitate to say too much about how I interpret these, but in the process of abstracting them further, they have made more unexpected transformations. This is what keeps me coming back and looking at the same things in different ways, and in different light.
You don’t always know what will grow from a tiny seed.

Thank you, Eric. I guess you would know about magnificence…
Those brown ones are really buzzing somehow! Very creature like, these, endlessly beautiful..
Thanks, Cath, I guess I should stop posting from this series soon, though – before I thoroughly bore everyone!
I love this series. The light and focus and feeling are all beautiful. Indeed, I too see a quite hairy insect on the wing, probably a fly, in some of these shots.
Thanks very much, Ephem. I’m having quite a bit of fun with these. I’m glad you are enjoying the series.
They are sensuous even sensual images.
I admire your endurance to search the quest.
Thank you, yoshizen.
To search the quest, yes, sometimes it’s difficult to switch directions…
This is such a beautiful, ethereal series Karen. Love them.
I’m glad you think so, Chillbrook. Much thanks!
I’m really enjoying these. Wonderfully crafted images that work quite well.
I’m glad you are enjoying them, Phil. Thanks very much!
I know! Browns and blues click in a really pleasing way. Every one of these is magnificent;an intimate, magical and unique choreography.
I knew you’d get that brown and blue thing, Elena. Thank you.
You are amazing artist! I’m so happy that I could know you.
These photographs express the beauty of the flower which I’ve never know…
Thanks for your very kind words, akanedou. I am happy to know your work also!
The strength of breathless fragility in these shots is stunning!
Patti, they are fragile little things – just at their end. Thank you for your great comment.
Me sigue encantado esta serie, ¡magnífica!, besos
Manoli, me alegro de que todavía disfrutan de esta serie. Estoy disfrutando de lo que es. Muchas gracias!
It’s quite beautiful to scroll down through this whole series and see the images as an abstract vision.
Thank you, Carla.
I always let out a little gasp when I first see your new pictures – if someone sat beside me and closed their eyes while I scrolled through my “reader” section, they would know when I came to drawandshoot.
Hi Lois, this is sincerely one of the nicest comments I’ve ever read. You are very kind! Thank you.
It’s just the truth!
beautiful Karen 🙂
Your blue and browns are indeed beautiful in these intimate shots, Karen…like tender and fragile lace….
