When I watch where I step I am often surprised at the beauty I find.

Today’s photo challenge from Michelle at the Daily Post is Work of Art:

When someone says “art,” they often use it as shorthand for “paintings and sculptures.” Art is everywhere, though: in nature, in architecture, in literature, and more. It’s anywhere we see beauty and meaning.


Leaf on the Line


In 2011 I carried a camera with me everywhere I went. Each day I took at least one photo and posted the best reflection of that day on Facebook with a unique and descriptive caption. A favorite group for me was “looking down”. I began to watch for opportunities to capture juxtapositions between organic and inorganic, and linear and curvilinear lines and shapes. Please feel free to click on one of these shots to see a larger image and go through the slide-show.


I began a digital art series called “FireBonnet Finds Fairies” and used one of these shots for my first fairy creation.

Watch Where You Step (For Sale Here)

The little fairy is finding fun in a place few people find fairies. This kind of juxtaposition and surprise can delight the eye and brighten the mind, what more could you ask for from a work of art?

I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day. :D

  1. I think that is one of the best compliments I’ve gotten in a long time. That is exactly how I feel when I look at them. I think there is something so peaceful about minimalism, and the basic harmony of strong composition. The juxtapositions are icing on the cake.

  3. I like your fairy creation! And I like this post for the “work of art” challenge – the leaf on the line is cool with title and in the looking down and the natural feel. 🙂
