Sitting in a friend’s house while she is away in Hawai’i, I looked over by the door and saw this still life sitting there on top of the microwave. A round rock sitting on a dried leaf. It spoke to me in some way. Symbolized something. It reminded me of the self portraits I do for the Self Portrait PhotoClub project – I always seem to make an image of a rock in the middle of something – chaotic grasses, flowing water, and now a leaf. I am the grounded earthiness in the middle of everything. It always feels that way.
So I start out the New Year with a self portrait of sorts, and wonder what this year bring.
I upload a lot of my iPhone images to Alamy/Stockimo and Instagram:
