On exhibit at the Art-Center in Saint-Petersburg, Russia

13 01 2014

A few months ago I was contacted by Asia Ershova, curator at the Art-Center in St. Petersburg, Russia, asking if I would participate in their annual International Photo Festival, “100 Wonders of the World.” This year the show runs from January 1 through March 2 (in case any of you just happen to be in Russia during this time). It was visited by more than 4,000 people in the first two weeks. They requested five of my images, which I’ll share in the next posting. Below are photos of the exhibition that show two of the pieces (koi fish pond with statue and a Buttonbush plant). Visit their site at www.artcenter.su. (You will have to ask my friend and fellow photographer Michael Powell to translate the site—he’s fluent in Russian!) Thank you to Andrey Bazanov, General Producer of the Art-Center, for providing these images from the festival.

Sigh…culling through my archives, in preparation for my March/April 2012 exhibit, is making me want to photograph blooms and bugs right now.

Since I didn’t get the photographic bounty I usually do at Kenilworth, I thought I’d repost images I’ve created in past years. Enjoy!

Buttonbush

28 06 2011

I photographed this Buttonbush cluster (Cephalanthus occidentalis), also known as Button willow and Honey balls, this morning at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in Washington, D.C. A native wetland tree, it can grow 10-15 feet tall and spread 15-30 feet. The mid-summer blooms are rich in nectar that attracts butterflies and other insects.
