Weeds

Standard

Quote of the Day:  I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?
Willie Nelson

Don’t get too excited.  Just because I live in the Santa Cruz mountains in Northern California, love the show by the same name and find Willie’s quote quite entertaining, todays blog is not about the wacky weed.  I would have to do much more research to intelligently write about that herb.  Today, I simply write about weeds, in general, and the impact they have had over the course of this journey with my photography.

Years ago I decided I wanted to expand my photo library to include the intricate details of flowers and plants.  I pulled out my soon to be favorite lens, my Nikkor 18-55mm and went  for a walk in the forest.  All my flower shots were blurry and uninteresting, however, my weed shots were crisp and lovely.  I began to notice a trend.  Lucky me, I had found my niche in the photography world.  My focus has changed over the years, but, I will always have a fondness for weeds.
