Beauty in Decay/13 & 14

For today, a couple of low key images of some carnations past their best, and a truly defunct daisy…

I am loving the low key effects I can get with my ‘studio'(!) set up and a little help from Nik Effects:


Last gasp carnations

Daisy Defunct

Daisy Defunct

Once again, which do you like best?



  1. Suzanne

    Maybe it’s the music I’m listening to right now but that image looks so sad – beautiful though.

    • Well, yes I think these two speak to the darker side of the soul…. A friend of mine might call them Caravaggio pictures! You’ve got me intrigued – what’s the music?

  2. I like the carnation image the most. Who knew that almost dead flowers could be so attractive?

  3. I really like the first image and I Really Like the black background.

  4. It’s the daisy for me

Over to you...
