Sir, I did not complete my assignment because my house plants insist that I play with them.

I also have a lot of succulents.

The site won't allow me to post photos because the sizes are too large .

 Beautifully curated house plants. Softening the edgy succulents with blunt form containers arranged to charm an otherwise mundane nook.
It seems to me that these sassy house plants could serve as fruit for picking up some interesting macrophotography. There are shapes (FORM) and textures that support creative lighting techniques and lens motion smear. DOF remains a challenge and therefore layers may need to be utilized to address all the focal plane changes. No better way to play with your plants than to honour their genetic expression with an artistic license-to-amaze. 

This is not intended as an assignment but merely a musing, of sorts.

Ya, well large canvas formats can be compressed, although Monet would turn in his grave at the notion. I guess your work is just too big for this pedestrian site. I see your work projected onto an outdoor screen several stories tall. I think that I'm dreaming. I must be asleep. I can always tell because everything turns to nonsense and then becomes just so much better than reality.

 Well, that is a surprise conclusion for a non-assignment. I must consider further the concept of giving you non-homework but I worship non-compliance too much. I'm impressed that your photos are not the usual nonograms, but have instead chosen to incorporated supporting actors in the form of other plants blurred beyond the plane of focus and also the totally unexpected … snippets of the outside environment to juxtapose tamed agents with the wild. I especially like the ground level shot of the potted plant caressing blades of grass. I am also drawn to the rosy-tinged pot overlapping the out-of-focus dark pot and the somber bokeh from outside. Your last plant looks like a hawk. That is a serious level of cultivation.
However, by MACRO I meant really CLOSE-UP. With a macro lens, or extension tubes capturing the contours of these succulents. Perhaps making it really juicy. Candy photography … since Halloween is on the event horizon. Still, these photos do make want to start a relationship with houseplants. Not before Halloween though, because there is death in the air. A dead houseplant can be quite scary.

Taking photos of dead plants might also be a good idea, but not scary things. Or I will have nightmare.


Another of my plants, I didn't know the combinations of yellow and purple can work out. Really love the idea
