Monet’s Garden

I once had the pleasure of spending a week at Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France. Six other photographers and I had private access to the grounds each morning and evening, before and after the public was allowed inside. The noted French artist created these gardens in the last half of his life so he would have subject from nature to paint without needing to travel far out in the countryside.

While I was there, I attempted to make a few images in my camera that were reminiscent of his impressionist style of art. Then I forgot about them. Recently I retrieved a few of those images and coupled them with quotations from his letters to friends. I find his ideas about nature, the world, art, and life resonate with my life today. Perhaps they will resonate with yours too.
