                                  The Woman in the Bamboo Forest

I created this image in a large stand of bamboo in a park in Central Florida.   I saw this woman in the distance intently observing something near the ground.  Like a deer in the forest--motionless. And then she bent over to inspect what she had been eyeing intently, crouching, motionless.  I pulled out my little camera and shot the image once, then a second time. This was not thinking, mostly reflex.  I saw something that my mind couldn't conprehend but by eye knew I had to record.  Photography, at times,  is more eye than brain. If it were not so, I would not have very many photographs in my album.
