Secret Garden Archway

Secret Garden Archway

I have loved to read even as young child. I remember a book about a gate to a secret garden. I don’t believe it was illustrated but in my mind, I had a vision of something like this. I saw an archway that was not locked or closed off. It was open and inviting. It led into a beautiful garden that I imagined. It was full of incredible trees, plants, flowers bird and tiny critters. It was not only green but had a multitude of vibrant colours: the kind you would see in Heaven. 

I took the original photograph and decided to “play” with it to create a perfect entrance way to my imaginary and fanciful, magical garden of creative potential. It is ripe with perspectives and possibilities as I hope my creative world is too.

Mandarin Oranges

Mandarin Oranges

This is a still life photograph of a box of Mandarin Oranges. I thought it would be interesting to unravel one orange and photograph the box against a hard wood floor. I like the contrast between what is covered and what is not. It is kind of like life and what we offer to people, that which we let them see on the exterior and what is really on the interior. It is the secret chapter of our life book that we do not let others read. I also added filters which highlighted the orange hues of the fruit and also the floor.

Secret Path

Secret Path

Secret Path

This secret path is near an old monk’s monastery in Northern France. The monastery has been converted to a home but there are secrets in the buildings and around the grounds. There is a sense of solitude and peacefulness as one travels along the back ways. I love the green colours in the imagery as well as the rich textured trees. I like the way the vines grow up these trees too.
