“May Flowers” Personal Projects

In a effort to create more work more often I am undertaking a monthly personal project. Finding inspiration and ways to look differently at the world you so often see can be difficult. So often we are so focused on the world that we know we forget to look around and forget to see things in a new light.

After a long winter and cool spring the flowers opened slowly here in Maine. I begin noticing the Forsythia blooming before everything else, it’s common for these little yellow reminders of a winter’s passing to arrive ahead of everything, but This year they seemed to be way ahead of everything else! I started noticing that there were only barren tree limbs, small budding leaves and vibrant forsythia flowers. It was a damp and grey Sunday afternoon hanging out with friends that a thought struck me, what about using all these flowers and a backdrop set against their respective complementary color. I turned to my friend Jessica and asked “do you own a purple shirt?” It was with this the project began.

I wanted to push myself beyond what I might normally, I’m not sure I achieved that but I feel with most personal photo endeavors it added a little bit to my skill set.
