Beautiful tones and depth of field work Karen.
Thanks very much, Distan.
Lace, reaching an inevitable end to its rich history and perhaps a disquieting past.
A very perceptive comment, Elena. =)
Some leaves really do end up looking like lace. Thank you.
Gorgeous as usual.
I’m glad you think so, Barry. Thank you!
Stunning, as always.
You are so very kind, Antonio.
Looking forward to more paintings from you. Soon?
I hope as soon as, 🙂
Amazing how much beauty you can extract from them. Magic…
Thank you, Sorin. They were already beautiful – I was just looking… =)
I love the way your work makes me feel. These photos evoke such a coy melancholgy. Absolutely beautiful.
Autumn Jade, thanks for your lovely comments. The first one made me think of moose antlers, too. =) I’m glad I’m not the only one!
I think , melancholgy should be a word, actually. I quite like it…
Melancholy, rather. Such are the fantastic patterns in nature, how subtly stunning they can be. Here, captured up close, you have indeed captured the essence of these decaying things, and realed their beauty- the return to soil, where the cycle of a tree’s life begins all over again. Contemplative and wonderful. And I really love that first one, reminds me of moose antlers. The light, the dark contrasts, I just love it all. Art. Cheers.
Love the minimum depth of field. Great to see such an imaginative approach to photographing this subject. Fantastic, Karen.
Thank you, Simon. I really appreciate your enthusiastic words. =)
mystical, beautiful, very touching…
Love the words you’ve chosen. Much thanks!
So delicate, so beautiful Karen.
Thank you, Adrian.
beautiful and interesting, thank u 🙂
I’m glad you find it so, thank you! =)
oh man – there MUST be a book of all this – MUST be – and soon!
You put a big smile on my face, Nathan. I’m not yet sure where this is all going… I’m truly thrilled at your response to my work , though. Thank you.
This is like a leaf depicted as a butterfly wing… make sense?
Beautiful, Karen. 🙂
Oh yes, makes sense to me, Marina – The delicacy and weightlessness.
Thanks so much. =)
Like the subject choice, although maybe just a little too shallow on the depth of field in my opinion.
Hi Todor, I guess this type of photography is not for everyone, but it sort of expresses what I had in mind. Thanks for your comment! =)
That’s the beauty of art. It generates conversation
Those little touches of focus around the leaf edges reveal the reason for the title. Without them, dissolution, a slip out of focus, a return to an imagined primordial chaos. Beautifully realised.
Oh, I love what this evokes for you, Richard. Your words are perfect.
Oh my God.. this is soo beautiful..♥
Thank you, that’s very kind!
These are so good, I want to cuss. Provocative. Ghost like. Fragile. Decrepit.
Sara, thank you. I love it when someone really responds to my images. Cuss words and all. Your descriptive words are great. Provocative – I love that.
I will never tire of this style you have developed and practice so well. Please keep them coming.
I shall do that, Ephem. Thank you.
And I will be happy to see more storm drains… =)
How intriguing! Lace, smoke, and even a hint of the Eiffel Tower!
And I agree with N. Filbert!! Book please!! 🙂
Cath, thank you. =) I love that you think that, you are so very kind.
The Eiffel Tower, how interesting…
Such exquisite magic in the details. Stunning imagery!
Thank you so much, Marcie. =)
there is such a beautiful sadness in these
Thank you, Isabella. I’m touched by your comment.
I guess it frames-up or encircling something, —– of what. ?
Something, —– something invisible —– it’s there.
= and made others puzzling as well.
Very witty nice work.
I guess it’s a good thing if someone puzzles over your work – we can all find our own meaning. I like that you find it witty.
Your crepe paper leaves! … These shots give them their grace and show their majesty. .. 🙂
Thanks so much, Gigi!
