Wood Anemone (Anemone quinquefolia)

Have you given thought to the nature and effect of randomness and probability on the outcome of  your photographic art? While more often in the lexicon of statistical analysts or mathematical philosophers, the concept or randomness and probability in our lives bears scrutiny.Why was this particular sample of Wood Anemone picked for a subject, in lieu of the thousands of others readily available?  There seems to be a great human propensity to see causal relationships (be it in religion or everyday life), where in fact, there are none...other than chance. As our responses to random stimuli do produce consequences (in the case of photography-prints), new sequences of behavior can become learned (you return back to a particular place that was visited by chance on the last occasion, because of unfinished work there) as a function of exposure and response to a random event. Some of our talented street photographers (Gary Winogrand, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Helen Levitt, etc.) seem to have acquired the ability to be present for and capture these random moments.
