Artist's Description

I saw this stem in the florist shop the other day and was completely fascinated by it’s form and especially by its wonderful name. I’ve looked at it for a couple of days wondering how I wanted to portray it. Would it suit the contrast of a dark background…or dof greenery? Somehow either of those weren’t what I wanted though because the idea of a star of a holy city seemed like it should have softer light.

I mention this because of things written by Carolyn Staut and Jan Miller. Carolyn’s recent flower came with a story. Jan has written of thinking about what we photograph in terms of truly seeing. I believe it’s all-important to know what your goal is with an image and that it conveys something. Whether or not I’ve achieved the idea of a kind of Divine radiance is open to question but the point is the intent and the attempt.

Holly :)
