My husband Pete and I love to explore. It seems that wherever we go, I find myself drawn into the ridges, bumps and shining surfaces of the unique natural forms we encounter. I'm usually the one kneeling on the ground with my camera lens inches from something, holding steady and waiting for the clouds to give way to sun. Zooming in on the details helps me see better, become better at drawing and keeps me amazed at the infinite interaction of light, shadow, color, shape and space. You don't have to travel far when you're looking at details. In fact, the center picture of that hosta leaf was taken outside our front door!
