There is still snow on the ground and I'm feeling cold so I thought I'd post my fire mandala. When we were in Santa Fe in December there was and event at the Palace of the Governors, where they built little fires in the courtyard. So I took pictures of the flames. Had fun trying to get a mandala that looked interesting but still had the feeling of fire.
Taking pictures has been second nature to me for 40 years. Being in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the light, Light is important. With light we see, we see where we are in relation to our surroundings and the world at large, thus my business name “To See the Light”.
Ever since I was a kid handed my first cardboard kaleidoscope, circular visions seen through the eyepiece intrigued me. When the camera was first invented the image produced was round, seen through a round lens. Camera lens are still round, but the area of exposure is a rectangle. The advent of digital photography and computers enables me to manipulate pie pieces of my images to create my circular visions, my Mandalas.
Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning center and circle, the circle is a complete shape representing wholeness.
I love the wonderful patterns formed in the center of my mandalas
