OK… So today (Saturday) was the day of the local flower show. This caught my eye as I stepped out of my car. I’ve given you the whole image, as I took it – this isn’t cropped. I think the negative space adds impact. Somehow, what I saw seemed strangely symbolic of modern life; one solitary fallen,but beautiful bloom left abandoned in the hustle and bustle of setting up the exhibits. A strange poignancy – what do you think?It's kind to share!
When I found this yesterday, the inherent patterns and shapes arrested me. I usually post flower pictures, which this one is, in a way, but with one important difference: the flower, as such, is dead. But never-the-less, it seemed to have both a visual and a symbolic beauty; visual beauty from shape and line, and symbolic beauty in that, here in death, we see the potential for so much more life, because of all those seeds.It's kind to share!
This shot is another foray into the idea of ‘negative space’ where a subject sits in a large background area. I loved the colours in this home-grown apple, but didn’t want to just fill the frame with it. The dark slats of this garden table make a contrast, illustrating two concepts connected with autumn: fruitfulness, but also, sometimes, a lot of dullness. This seemed to work for me.It's kind to share!
