Award Winner | Photo of the Day | August 05, 2011
On my quest to take photographs of flowers in my neighborhood, I found this stunning Lily. As I studied this flower closer, it reminded me of a volcano, with its yellow center shooting up from the middle. The macro lens enables me to get up close and personal and see the intricacies that are not ordinarily visible the naked eye. The texture of the petal is delicate, with its ruffled edges, but as a whole, it appears to me as a sturdy, passionate flower.

As a classically trained pianist, Robbie comes to photography looking for visual melodies. Just as music can take you on a journey, make you laugh and cry and touch the deepest part of your soul so can a photograph. She is a storyteller and looks for visual narratives that define a place in time. She is also drawn to finding beauty in unexpected places, hoping to intrigue, inspire, and evoke a reaction from the viewer. Robbie is a champion of the overlooked and sees her photography as a way to create change, giving exposure to societal issues that need to be addressed.
