A while back I was thinking a lot about mandalas. Cycles. Infinity. I found inspiration in Jason Hughes' work. I was thinking about imperfect mandalas and how they are such a fitting metaphor for actual living. I tried photographing some imperfect mandalas, but it wasn't working. The images were flat and missing real meaning. Then last night, I had an idea. I found my daughters kaleidoscope and started playing. Here's what I found. Hopefully this is just the beginning. I have more exploration to pursue.
