I spent last weekend on a Kibbutz on the Kinneret in Israel.  While I was there I did a lot of walking around and decided to take the opportunity to do a bit of nature photography.

Last weekend my boyfriend, Elior, gave me two plants.  One of them was already in bloom but the other was just a couple of green sprouts.  I asked him what kind of plant it was and he told me, “It’s a surprise.”  The florist told him it would bloom within a week so I knew right away that for my fourth creative project of 2011 I wanted to make a time-lapse video of my new plant growing and blooming.

My tripod is M.I.A. so I set up a pile of books on my desk across from the plant with my camera on top of them and got to work (click here for a pic of my setup).  Every hour (approximately) I took a picture of the plant and you know what?  It was so exciting!  You never really think about growth until you see how much a plant can grow in a single hour and within less than one week my plant was in bloom.  Some new buds have formed so I’m still taking pictures and I’ll be updating the video as my plant grows more, but here’s what I’ve got so far.  The flowers got to heavy and started to fall over so we put sticks in to hold it up at the end.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for my second creative project of 2011 until a leaky ceiling filled my fuse box with water and left me without electricity for two days.  Flashlightless, I resorted to seeing by candlelight and I couldn’t help but notice how even my dog was mesmerized by the jumping flames.  Fire is beautiful, and I think pretty much everyone can agree on that, so I decided for my second creative project this year I would try to capture it on (digital) film.
