Then, as I worked more to explore this genre, the images became more abstracted from the more obvious state of dewdrops on foliage. The fact that they were water became less and less obvoius. More and more people were asking me if they were actually paintings rather than photographs. Many could not discern the subject matter that resulted in the photograph. However, the fundamental aspect or the orb and arc of water, dew and rain drops still in my mind at least domninated the images.
