The removal of all distractions, time in the garden, time for stillness leading to deep reflection, and growth. This series takes the smallest item and brings it to centre stage. Feathers collected on walks, the last rose of the season, common flowers and the joy of a bought bouquet as a special treat. All of these form the subjects to reflect on, the opportunity to see behind and deeply into the subject. Reflected in an antique mirror with minor blemishes that appear randomly in the images. Reflecting deeply into the past, experiencing the reality of the present and creating an unexpected sense of joy and hope about the future.
