From the sidewalk above it was not a particularly pretty place. A patch of bramble that followed a small creek for a few hundred yards. But it was nearby and accessible and I had a new macro lens to try out. What started as practice turned into a year-long documentation of my “meadow.”

This series of images represent many forays into the meadow in all four seasons and all kinds of weather. Never was I more excited to see rain, ice, and snow.

I knew right away that this series would be in black and white so the focus remained on the shape and texture of these small wonders of nature.
