I was a small child, I was forever running through tall grasses
and low shrubs, so I became very familiar with glimpses of things.
I've found that, as an adult, I appreciate not being told the whole
story or shown the entire scene, but being allowed room for my imagination
to wander. It's nice to have that part of being a child stay with
There are many days now when I use my camera to go poking through
underbrush or plants in my garden, letting the leaves and flowers
and spiders' webs and dewdrops appear and disappear almost by magic.
In fact, the most exotic places in the entire world seem to be right
around my house.
