Transient

I thought of Street Art, which is definitely transient, but then I decided to revert to type and show a bit of decay – the remains of things are testament to their existence as viable entities at one time but now a shadow of their former selves like this classical Roman pillar in Sicily, and those flowers in the foreground will lead an all too transient life:

Single Classical pillar amidst tangle of wild flowers

      Many thanks, Gilly! I was disappointed when in Sicily, because I wasn’t able to get about as much as I would have liked to capture the ruins and the wildflowers….so this image is important to me

  5. Fantastic photo. Shows the flourishing that always leads to decay. With the sky as another transience.

  6. I love how you have focused on what is and not what was in this photo. The living flowers adds another dimension to the transient Roman decay.

  7. Sue even without the deeper meaning this is a brilliant photo. Makes my heart happy just to stare at it.

  8. great composition and interpretation Sue!

  9. Every week, WordPress is giving me headaches when I try to access some blogs. Today it was with yours, but I am here finally. This is so cool 🙂

  10. This is a beautiful image, Sue. 🙂 🙂 Your poppies are well and truly transient now, with all the rain, but I’m garnering roses.

  11. Ahhhhh, great shot and perfect pick.
