Monochromatic Point of View
The play of light and shadow in our natural world
This is a collection of images inspired by my awe and fascination with the beauty of nature. These works focus on the shapes, textures and delicate beauty of plants, flowers, leaves and other natural things we pass by everyday and rarely truly see. This is the way I see them with my eyes and heart.

Hope you enjoy.

Form is Emptiness

"Form is emptiness;
emptiness is form;
form is not other than emptiness;
emptiness is not other than form."

~Heart Sutra
The Pearl
The Past

'In the midst of the flowering present,
remains of what has been still linger,
only to be swept with the wind
in a blink of an eye.'

Faith is in you whenever you look
At a dewdrop or a floating leaf
And know that they are because they have to be.
Even if you close your eyes and dream up things
The world will remain as it has always been
And the leaf will be carried by the waters of the river.

~Czeslaw Milosz

All Your Little Diamonds
Growing Towards the Light
To Die and So to Grow

"And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth."

~Johan W. Von Goethe, from The Holy Longing
