Thinking about what is necessary...
This is beautiful to me, just as it is.
And this is interesting to me, I like the simplicity.
(Silk dyed with carrot tops and hazelnuts, with a round resist; a moon perhaps. There is a book page underneath the fabric.)
But with a filter added, the photo is more interesting to me. The wrinkles more visible, the light is more dramatic, there is a story building.
And this, the two photos layered + filters, is even more interesting to me.
There is a story now...It's about cycles and resiliency and being open to dreams. And about the ability to play.
