Nothing Moves But the Wind

 

     When the world woke to lockdown that day in March, I stepped out on my veranda and listened to the wind rustling through the trees. Human activity had come to a halt and nothing was moving except the wind.

     As time went by, I began, and still continue to take long walks through the nature preserve that surrounds my home, inspired to take pictures by the details of light on foliage that catches my eye.

     The swirling energies of a shifting universe dance before my camera while leaves and light merge into simultaneous complex and beautiful patterns  that reveal the powerful forces of the natural world.These photographs allow me to stop and applaud the ephemeral beauty of our natural world. What I capture in the camera reminds me that nature is the greatest teacher. In many ways, nature remains uncontrollable, and yet reveals its sublime patterns. No one could have thought these patterns up, I think to myself, and yet they are perfect. This work probes the unpredictable effects of natural elements.
