The power of attraction
One of the laws of nature I find I can always rely on, and even use to my benefit, is the law of attraction: Like simply attracts like, such as misery loving company, frustration leading to more frustration, and on the brighter side laughter and joy being contagious. Perhaps the most important application of this law is appreciation because focusing on those aspects of any situation that I find pleasing attracts more pleasing aspects for me to appreciate. So by seeking out the positive i attract more of what I want and use the law of attraction to make my world a better place … And that’s beautiful!
Abstract macro photography of impermanent designs created with oil and water
Olympus E-3, Sigma 105mm macro, f/5.6 @ 1/250, ISO 100, Flash
The color in this piece was created with strands of straw placed below the container, some their natural tones and others dyed red, blue or green. I created the metallic sheen by placing a defused and dimmed flash at an angle below the surface level of the oil & water mixture.
