DescriptionLet me introduce you to Spotted Touch-Me-Not, also known as Impatiens capensis. It grows in wet areas, by streams or ponds or lakes. It prefers shade. If it looks somewhat familiar to you , as a gardner, you might already know that is closely related to that red impatiens in that hanging basket or planter on your deck.I. capensis has a surprising and pleasant use. The crushed stems are very soothing and help to heal poison ivy. It has additional medicinal uses but I am not an expert on these other uses nor am I qualified to recommend them.I am , however, as a student of botany and especially of wildflowers, quailified to tell you how beautiful this flower is. And as a photographer, I'm qualified to show you.
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.
