Water drops on my Zebra grass – Miscanthus sinensis (also known as Chinese silver grass, Eulalia grass, maiden grass, zebra grass, Susuki grass, porcupine grass). The foliage develops distinctive golden horizontal bands in midsummer. In autumn, silvery-white plumes appear and last up to two months. Grows 4-7 ft. tall. Origin : Eastern Asia and west to Africa.
“Photography is hard to hold onto – it is easy for someone to imitate someone else. So easy to use the same textures, subjects, colors. It is especially easy when someone is learning their craft. Find someone you like, follow them, absorb them. There is nothing wrong with that. It only becomes wrong when you stop there, when you don’t follow yourself all the way out.”
