About Anne Camille

I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them. I am a photographer, a reader, a writer, a thinker, a dreamer. Mostly you'll see the photographer here, but signs of the others shine through every now and again.

    The leaves remind me that my daughter and I collected some from beneath a tree, ranging in color from green to deep red to brown, and did a sort of Andy Goldsworthy construction with them in chromatic order on the trunk of the tree. We used thorns to attach the leaves. Goldsworthy himself did a permanent construction nearby.

      I was not familiar with Goldsworthy, so I googled him after reading your comment. Spent the major part of the last hour looking at images of his work. I really like it, but wonder how he found so many vibrant colors in one place! Just another indication that so much is around us that we really don’t ever take notice of. I think I’ll be more observant when I go to rake leaves this afternoon. I’d rather gather materials and make a Goldsworthy-like installation though!
