“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein

Surprise Beauty

What a fascinating creature a caterpillar is. It starts life as a pest and turns into a beautiful butterfly that can help to pollinate our food crops and perpetuate our ability to feed ourselves. According to Wikipedia ” Some species of caterpillars are pests because in their larval stages they can damage domestic crops or trees; however, some species are agents of pollination of some plants, and caterpillars of a few butterflies (e.g., Harvesters) eat harmful insects.” So truly life can be a matter of perspective and time. How you see something and what role it plays are different depending on when you look at what you are looking at. A caterpillar is a great example of this. Do you see it as a pest or a beautiful creature that helps to feed us?

Nature and life fascinate me. They are an ever evolving portrait of creation and evolution. I love to take so many pictures with my camera and study them and visually explore my world. I see miracles everywhere, and I attempt to create a visual interpretation of what this means to me. My eyes allow me to capture the light that is bouncing off of objects and forms. This capture is sent into my brain to try and interpret. Then I use my hands and my heart to put back into being what I think I have seen. We only exist because something created us. Does that not make us works of art ourselves?
