I’m not sure this quite lived up to expectations. I do think the textures of dead and dying flowers can be very beautiful but I’m not sure I did the best job of capturing them here.
I bought the IGPOTY book a while back and it inspired these photos. It really is worth getting, it has a very broad range of photographs in it and really is quite inspiring.
I took this photo at 10pm in the evening in an underpass. I think passers by must have wondered what the hell I was doing. I guess you can take it as slightly tongue in cheek but I felt it had a certain resonance.
Some friends bought these lilies for me. It may seem a little macabre but white lilies are my favourite flowers, I love the texture and form of them. So inevitably I photographed them.
An absolutely beautiful day, I just couldn’t resist going out with my camera to photograph the evening light. I find this time of day so tranquil.
No prizes for guessing the inspiration for these photos. This wood really surprised me and the bright but overcast day gave ideal lighting. Somewhere I must go back to.
These are not actually dandelion seeds, they’re very similar but about twice as big. I deliberately let the odd one grow in the garden because the seed heads are so appealing.
And indeed he delivers photographically speaking. I’m continually enticed by churches, I think it’s the symbolism that appeals to me so much and the peace and solitude.
