The play of energies in the imagery around us, as we see it in our visual perceptions, has vivid power that always clearly and thoroughly reveals the true nature of our whole world within just that one scene, and that is a delightful experience if it is accepted as is with no judgement. Some sets of appearances naturally make this universal penetration more dynamically obvious by clearly defining its structural heirarchy. These are the moments that reach out and grab you, saying “Shoot me!”
So I am looking around for the qualities of spaciousness arising from a rich ground with some relation of the elements that establishes an interconnecting flow of vitality.
Having an open eye, the proper focus, and the suitable framing to define the context is the natural basis of this approach.
D. Wilde

Appreciating the basic quality of a particular ground allows a view worthy to present.
Opening to that space, the essential elements are all found, naturally residing in their appropriate places.
Diving in to taste the full richness of the situation will reveal the depth of subtle connections.
The freedom in expression of that reality, not confused by thought or emotionality, will be a breath of fresh air for the viewer.

If you are thinking of printing from the gallery files, you should be aware that the result will never be as vivid as what you see here on a monitor because the light shining up here with the color you are seeing is a direct source.
A print is lighted from an external source that has to be reflected back to you off the mounted paper and also has to get thru the glazing before it reaches your eye. This handicap requires spending a lot of care (and probably money too) in properly matting and framing the print to enhance the dynamic feel of the image, matching the digital splendor displayed on a screen.
