Ahh my favorite model. This idea came as I was sitting in a workshop a few weeks ago. Photographer/Artist Brooke Shaden was evangelizing about inspiration, creativity and the artist within us all. I was listening and absorbing and this picture came to mind. Not exactly like this but pretty darn close. Later in the week I photographed Buddy in my "studio" (a small space with storage bins) with an atrociously colored background but some terrific texture. I added in four or five photographs (all mine thank you) and the final photo started to take shape. Alas, I had no photographs of any trees. Can you believe that??? So off to Saint Edwards State Park and I shot some trees before the rain came down hard. I even got my knees wet as I knelt to get that all important ground shot.
The flowers. Yes the flowers. Those flowers are called Ranunculus. I had the gal at the flower shop write it down. I photographed the flowers for another personal project and they were getting a little long in the tooth. Inspired by Ms. Shaden I made multiple photographs of that small bunch of flowers (try about 100) to get a totally different looks and trajectory. Yes, it is a Flower Shower and illustrates how much beauty this boy brings to our lives.
Now...did he or didn't he chomp on that flower? You make the call...it's my secret.

Another ethereal photo, just beautiful. I sense a single, determined ray of sunshine breaking through the fog to light the flowers and Buddy's face.
