Photo-art of a bunny statue surrounded by federation daisies

Art all around

Working from home, I often go for days without leaving the house. Surrounded by the familiar can sometimes seem like a block to creativity but if you can get past that, the familiar can lead to creative and more deeply meaningful compositions. The featured image "Pushing up Daisies" above was composited with photos all taken within a few feet of my front door. The ones in the gallery below, all from a short wander around the garden. 

 

"Pushing up daisies" was accepted in the Open division at the 2016 PSNZ Central Regional Salon, hosted by the Kapiti Camera Club. Prints are available.
