From the publisher: Tony Mendoza's name is for many synonymous with that of his beloved cat Ernie, made famous by the 1985 publication of the same name. In the summer of 2004, Mendoza closed down his black and white darkroom and purchased a digital camera. On his first outing with the new equipment, he began photographing his wife Carmen's plot at the community garden near their Columbus, Ohio home. Accustomed to looking -- through his years of photographing cats and dogs from their own perspective -- at the world from a low vantage point, he photographed the flowers, ants, bees and weeds from a worm's eye view. Mendoza continued his project through the seasons, both in Columbus and San Francisco, where the stormy, foggy and overcast skies provided a perfect backdrop to the flowers and their companions.
