Beauty in Decay/27

I was given some flowers over a week ago, and they are just starting to decay. I took one of the roses out of the water to hasten it’s demise (cruel woman)…. the petals have started to curl, and the whole flower is beginning to shrivel, Alas, I don’t have the light that I did earlier in the year, so there is less texture visible here. I must do some experiments with light sources when I have the time! Or energy.

  1. Time to experiment with that light box?

  2. It’s lovely, even after death. 🙂

  3. That ethereal, eclipse lighting that you are working with in this photo is wonderful.

  4. cloaked in yellow – the shape of decay is lovely

  5. That looks… almost a bit obscene 😉

  6. It’s a sad looker, Sue. Fancy you depriving it of water on purpose! I sometimes have that wilted feeling myself 🙂

  7. Love the faded yellow against the black…stunning…

  8. Fascinating, it looks almost like a crumpled duster 🙂

  9. I agree with Allan about the ethereal lighting and it working for you in this and other photos. This poor sad little flower and yet it crumples down on itself so elegantly. Maybe we could learn a lot from how flowers wilt gracefully…

Over to you...
