The unknown flower

Chardonnet26-4-17-1

When I saw this flower at my local florist, I instantly felt attracted and curious. It has fascinated me right away with its spicy and soft aspect . I’m just totally, enormously, definitely in love with each part of it. Outside, inside. The lines, shapes, structure, colors, contrasts. I could stare at it for hours and the more I look at it, the more I feel blessed and grateful.

As you know, music plays an important part in my creative process, a part that, I  recently realized, is essential. Music belongs to my photography, the act of capturing with a camera, telling a visual story goes, for me, together with music.  It’s not that I necessarily identify myself with the lyrics but when I’m busy capturing something special from a flower, I forget my life, my past, my present, my body (well not completely my whiplashed neck unfortunately…) and I dive into something that is beyond me and just like in David Lynch movies there is always a music, a melody that goes with it and makes it, at least for me, a whole thing. I wish one day, I will be able to exhibit my photos together with each music that goes with it. 

This time I listened again and again, Double Roses, the second album of  Karen Elson and specially the song Wolf.

“Oh heart, now you are cold
Cold like the stone in the river he now throws
Oh heart, you slowly beat
A funeral march of sorrowful feet

In the darkest night I hear your call
The wolf is howling at my door
I shall not let him in anymore”

May you all have an inspiring day.

    This is super cool! I feel the same way about music and I’m sorry you’ve got a whiplashed neck!
