For Sheer Joy

For Sheer Joy - Ellie Kennard 2016
For Sheer Joy – Fuchsia – Ellie Kennard 2016

This image of a single fuchsia represents for me the distilled joy and the beauty of flowers, in particular the delicacy and transience of each bloom of the fuchsia in its short life. It reminds me of a bird taking off and of a ballerina with arms raised gracefully, about to leap into the air in the arms of her partner. It seems to radiate the sheer joy of living and life.

I hope you enjoy it and it helps to make your weekend joyful and bright! It is another in my series of multiple exposure floral images.

These multiple exposures are all on my blur gallery here

  1. +Ellie Kennard Siento decirte que no soy fotógrafo! Que sólo me guío por la emoción o sentimiento que despierten en mí, pero que no puedo opinar a nivel técnico y demás.
    Por tanto, el honor es mío y el agradecimiento hacia ti también por combinar fotografía y técnica e imaginación y sensibilidad para convertirlo en Arte.

  2. That’s really beautiful, it made my day! Most of us don’t usually see these little sings of love ! Thank you so much for posting it here,
    wish you are having an great Sunday !

    1. Thanks so much, Banafshe. I’m glad that you liked it so much. I am enjoying my Sunday and hope that you have a wonderful week and take lots of beautiful photographs yourself.

  3. Uau Ellie, this is a novelty and I´m happily confused because It never ocurred to me using exposure in plants photography. It´s the first time I see this, and I´ve seen hundreds of thousand of plant pictures.The most interesting is that, this can reveal another perspective of the signatura of species and could be very helpful for Ethnobotany investigation. Just like you mentioned, a destillation of the Spirit. Congratulations and thank You for revealing new "territory".
