It is amazing!!! Wow, I could totally picture a story behind it. Are all your family members so creative?? Music, writing and photography--anything else we're missing? ;D I'm so impressed!

kelly, other people have commented on the number of creative people in the family. it's really strange. my father's side= no creativity. mother = very creative. all 3 kids creative. my husband's side of family= no creativity. (these are the people who didn't believe in reading fiction.) both of my kids are extremely creative. it does make me wonder if there is a dominant gene for creativity. anybody know?

does the pairing of a non-creative and creative = creative?

god, that doesn't even look like a word anymore. :D

Whoa, seriously cool picture! Hats off to your brother.

Thanks for posting the link.

BTW, I agree with the comment. The blend of man-made rigidity with nature is strangely disturbing.

It's fantastic, anne. Kudos to your bro.

That image is fantastic. I clicked through his entire site. Beautiful stuff.

I don't know, but I strongly suspect (the gene exists).

I love that photograph - he captured just enough of the flowers and grass to lure you into the forest - where undoubtedly some evil witch is waiting to tempt you with gingerbread and sweets...

Great photo! I agree it would make a cool book cover. It has a kind of hypnotizing quality about it. Congratulations to your brother for winning Best Photo! :)
