All white, not quite

Azaleas in Dulwich Park: photographed every year since I got a camera. Thinking that I look more now at light and shade and shapes, abstractions and less at blossoms. More sense of something I do all the time, and these pass through it, than of a flowering moment that comes and soon goes. This is both satisfying and alarming. Important to hold in mind the ways in which photography is eye-opening, expansive, but also exploitative, reductive.
