This image is from a project titled “The Night Garden.”
As a night photographer I seek out old ruins, illuminate them, and draw the flowers, with light.
These flowers are ephemeral, existing only in the moment. The captured images form the garden.
Our world needs more enchanted things.

The imagery in the "The Night Garden" photograph inspired our youth ensemble to share these words from Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare.
