Daisy And The Elephant Man

July 31, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Daisy and The Elephant?  Ok, you've heard of artistic license, so here's a dose of it.

The daisy is a straight  forward exposure I took, facing my camera into the top of the bunch.

Focus was on the center bloom which looked really nice to me.  There you have it.e 

The other day we again visited a local farm and I found a nice group of heirloom tomatoes.   

Some had extraordinary shapes to them.

It wasn't until I started playing around with arrangements that I thought of The Elephant man.

The distortion and disfigurement of Joseph Merrick's body are well recorded.  I couldn't help be reminded of it, so I named this still life in respect to him.

If you are not familiar with John Merrick's story, I hope you will seek it out.  We are all humanity.

As always please use the image link to visit the gallery for larger images and specific info.  Enjoy.
