I often find my eye drawn to fragile objects, and feel compelled to photograph that which is about to dissolve or crumble. There’s something magical about the barely-there-ness of vulnerability, like this deteriorating leaf in Jamaica Bay…
… and this frosted hydrangea in Ireland.
Then there’s the diaphanous beauty of wintry seedheads in Manhattan‘s Battery Park, just one gust of wind away from extinction…
…the glassy glory of Martin Blank’s Fluent Steps sculpture in Tacoma…
…and quirky icicles on a winter’s day in Central Park.

There are so many fragile things, after all. People break so easily, and so do dreams and hearts. – Neil Gaiman
Life is fragile and absurd. – Leo Tolstoy
