During sheltering in place from the coronavirus virus, I delved into the world of macro photography at home. It was an uncertain, tumultuous time with the pandemic raging and the 2020 presidential election being challenged. I felt the country was divided. So for my own peace of mind I wanted to use polar opposites, oil and water, to create something beautiful and special. I like to think of these images as a place of wonder where opposites attract, becoming something more than just themselves.
