To nourish my spirit, sometimes I have to put myself in some really "odd" places too--where, perhaps, it might at first seem that the spirit is completely "out of place." It's hard to imagine, and I would never have expected it, but I've had some very "spiritual" moments on a track field, in a movie theater, at my office desk--even, on rare occasions, in church! Well, I jest a little, but the point is, the Spirit is at home everywhere, and no matter where I am, the Spirit is with me.
So, although I made the four flower photos in this post inside, under controlled conditions, I really feel that "nature" was with me in my studio. The Spirit was also there, perhaps nudging me to pay attention with all my senses, even my spiritual ones, so that I could portray something of the true spirit of nature in my photos.
