Adrift by Wendy  Slee

Currently unavailable for purchase

Two tiny leaves drift upon the surface of a single raindrop, held with care in the centre of a larger leaf in my garden……
What amazes me, are the tiny drops of water that these minute leaves also hold close, as if every leaf has to preserve it’s own little store of that precious shower of rain…..

I have been playing with a Nikon 105mm macro lens, still getting a handle on it… but heaps of fun as it shows me things my eyes just could not see by themselves!

    Nice to see the use of the word play in your narrative Wendy and glad that you are still playing :)

    Great play on display here too and the way the stems draw you in from all edges works a treat.

  • Thank you Stuart and YES! it is all play (so much so that I feel guilty at times ha ha)

    Energy is our life force and is also known as chi or prana in Eastern cultures. It is important to maintain and enhance our energy flows together with positive thinking and meditation. This wonderful photograph Wendy reminds me of something that Thomas Arnold once wrote….The difference between one person and another is not mere ability, it is energy. Yours is full of inspiration and wonder! Thank you for sharing it with us all! Thinking of you!Sx

  • OH Thank you so much Sophie….what beautiful and thought provoking words you have given here……. I find such energy and joy in “discovering” this universe anew and finding new meaning in what it delivers….. xx

    great macro Wendy i love playing with the macro mode on my camera. did you win the peoples choice award the other night or for digital photography. cheers carol

  • I do too, and have missed it since I lost my old Minolta camera (which had a brilliant macro on it)…… Now I am having such fun! thank you for your comments….if you ever wish to capture the wild orchids, we have plenty out here right now, but they wont last too long with the hot weather coming….
    NO, I got the third place in the people’s choice award – the winner of people’s choice was also the same guy who won the Professional photography section. My win was in the digital art section, or as they call it “digitally enhanced” lol……
