    Bronze in Book (Series Only)/Nature

ENCHANTED FOREST is my second book in a series that explores how meaning may be derived or expended when we associate words with images. My first book, SEEING, began with stated insights that were later associated with images that either provided a break between the insights or took them deeper, where words could not go. This book begins with images that look like something other than what they actually are. Each image is titled to give the viewer some idea of what I saw. The world can be so much more than it seems if we take a closer look to see what we are actually looking at instead of what we expect to see.
