This lily pond is a constant source of inspiration … never fails to remind me of my favourite artist (add a bench, and it is idyllic!!!).
Shot from a similar spot to my Enticement shot.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    A Monet moment?…. You bet!!
    I imagine he’d be proud to see this…. might even look to you for inspiration!

  • Ah the park is full of inspiration Rosemary! I suspect there’ll be a No 2 and No 3 of this “Monet” series before long – I hardly knew which way to turn to shoot pics on this day – great light, and so green!! Thank you for the lovely encouragement.
