Description I was over at Randy's one summer evening and there in his flowerbed was this pink-ish blue-ish flower growing smack in the middle his flower bed. I always take pictures there so it was nothing for me to pick up the camera and head to the flowerbed. But here was this flower. This little flower. Smack in the middle of the flower bed. Beyond the thorny roses, tucked down amongst the lily leave straps, was this little pink flower. While my camera and I were welcome, I did not want to actually walk into the flower bed to take a photo of a little pink flower. So I studied the situation. I knew I needed to be a quick study because the sun was setting on this little pink flower in the middle of a flower bed. It didn't seem to matter much what way I turned or which angle I came from, the fact remained that this was a little pink flower in the middle of a flowerbed. And now the sun was setting behind it. Well poo. I finally pulled out my last trick in my magic hat. I can't explain it completely, but it somehow involves bending over sideways while nearly standing on my head and grabbing my right ankle with my right hand, which is also holding the camera, in order to get my shot. So here it is. Here's my shot of a little pink flower in the middle of a flower bed, bidding the day goodnight.
Brenda Leitow Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Photography is one of the most essential things to a happy life, in my world. Every time I get out my camera I go out and bathe myself in light and color and line and texture... and everything in the world around me. Photography is a very emotional art for me. When I take photos in the rain, or in the morning dew, or when the light gets soft near sunset, or sharp at sunrise, the light creates such an atmosphere that I can almost feel the colors melting right into my being, creating their lasting impressions. My job as an artist is to capture colors, not always as I see them, but also how I imagine them to be. I manipulate light and color to my desire. It's rather like a prism, bending the light, showing color. Only as a photographer I bend the light less precisely, leaving some breathing space for the light to find its own path. The light creates itself in that way, taking away my control, and does amazing things with color that never even occurred to me to imagine.
