New Wave Whimsey Photo Series

This is a first of a series of photos I took this Christmas here in Brooklyn, in Delaware and at Longwood Gardens, the former estate and "living legacy" of Pierre DuPont. The estate, a sprawling ten acre stretch of gardens & lit pathways, is in Pennsylvania, just over the Delaware border. Although all photos come from life and are beautiful on their own, I wanted to play with colors and shapes. The distorted wave-like shapes and "oil slick" colors are meant to tickle the eye and pull focus, directly to the inner eye. Some say that treating the eyes to bright & vivid color, can help with winter depression, or the "winter blues." Of course, these photos are freakier and more fun when you see them up close and larger-than-life, so feel free to click on your favorite for a closer look. Some of the original photos are below the photos to the right. Enjoy. D.
