When luminous flower photography and inspiring quotations combine, there is richness and fresh clarity. At the creative union of visual and linguistic forms, illumination is cast by both, so expression, insight, and wonder are enriched. When evocative words are placed with images of nature’s flowers, a magic of inspiration and insight emerges.
Power of imagery
Both wordsmiths and photographers know the power of imagery. They understand imagery’s rich capacity to capture a moment. With artistic skill, both wordsmiths and photographers wield imagery’s power to elicit deep, insightful responses.
Power of flowers
Flowers are well-suited to draw upon imagery’s deep power. Poet Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote, “Little flower – but if I could understand what you are, root and all, and all in all, I should know . . . God and man.” Beautiful images of flowers have the capacity to evoke feelings and memories as well as symbolize human ideas and archetypal concepts. Spanish poet Diego Hurtado de Mendoza described that meaningful reach within his poetic view of a flowering tree, stating “It seems to want to give away flowers . . . it is longing for something. It seems to want to flower.”
Power of words
Wonderful quotes are powerful springboards. They can kick in the door to fresh perspectives on ideas, experiences, and emotions. Strong quotes illuminate with pleasurable succinctness and compelling perspective. Powerful quotes open up layers of complexity and pathways of the imagination.
Power in words unified with visual imagery
Imaginatively combining photographs of flowers with evocative words initiates a meaningful, intensification process. As Albert Einstein described, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” The unifying process springboards freshness and originality. The integration experience productively empowers, for as understood by Einstein, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”

Internalized meaning and power
