Trees in Love
As a Modern Pictorialist, a requirement of the practice of photography arts is to be in position to record a moment, as with my abstract “Trees In Love”. The renowned French photographer, Henri Cartier Bresson, described those blessed points in time as “a decisive moment”. That is what it felt like when receiving “Trees In Love”. When the unexpected breeze kicked up to ripple the water’s reflection with those beautiful impressionistic broken colors, I felt that I was there for that very reason.
