Welcome to my website. I invite you to view my photographs.
For years, I have been an amateur photographer. During my career as a nursing professor, I have travelled to many countries. My camera has been a constant companion.
Retirement has provided more time to hone my photography skills. Special “subjects” of interest include closeups of animals, birds, flowers & leaves; landscapes; people (especially child / family pictures); and the sun & moon.
To offer some insight into my fascination with photography, this artist’s statement explains my passion for taking flower photos: Whether planted in arranged gardenscapes, growing wild in fields or brightening the side of a country road, a flower creates a beautiful space, a visual “come hither.” The miracle of emerging from a tiny seed to become a glorious blossom is awe-inspiring. Macro floral photography draws me to the inner beauty of these palettes of nature, tantalizing my aesthetic sense of color and form.

Each photograph is available for purchase from RedBubble in a variety of high quality formats. I can place custom text over any photo. Many of my photographs are also available at www.artwanted.com/laurelsbylaurel
