Two of my submissions to the juried Phillips Mill Photographic Exhibition this year were from a November '09 afternoon in our backyard when a few drooping leaves of a straggling hydrangea bush were back-lit by the last rays of sun. “Liminality: Dead Hydrangea macrophylla Leaf, Back-lit", above, is my favorite. The judges, however, liked my "Twisted Hydrangea macrophylla...” image below! The show, in New Hope, PA, will be open to the public from June 5 – June 26, 2011. Most works, including my own, will be for sale. Prints are always available on my SmugMug site as well. –Anna Lisa

Back in June, I was proud to have this photo shown in a wonderful juried photography show right here in my own county-- Bucks County, PA. The final show was intriguing and quite instructional. This image was originally meant as my "answer" to the old tired cliché "rose on a piano" image. Here's the Phillip's Mill site: http://www.phillipsmill.org/index.html

In my art, I'm interested in bringing folks ’round to the realization that there are at least as many ways of seeing as there are people in this world. Another thing– It’s a great and exciting world, yet there’s wondrous beauty being overlooked right in our own backyard. This back-lit leaf above fell about 20 ft. from my back door one fall, & I spent over an hour photographing the scene. Another autumn closeup below, “Autumn Maple Leaf Pair on Moody Rock” is an oldie from my good old Kodachrome 64 days that's been a favorite for many of my viewers. Hope you’ll enjoy the colors & viewpoints here, and the surprises of the backyard as well as around the planet! Sidebar links will take you to my entire gallery and I hope to post regularly. I'll eventually add some poetic posts or pages here. -–Anna Lisa Yoder
