    Sadly in our world everything decays/dies – but there is still beauty and opportunity for photographic creativity to be found. I'm sure there are lots of different interpretations out there!

      In need of some paint perhaps but it looks like you've got a handle on it 🙂

    Love your interpretation Kent – there's something rather poignant about your neglected door!

    Hi Eileen, I suspect this reply will appear in the wrong spot but that's OK. I love your pic of the flower, the colours are magnificently radiant against the dark background. It may be dying but this flower is still beautiful in its decline. The light gives it more life.

      Thank you so much Graham, I was about to throw some tulips away that had ‘had it' , but was sruck by the fact the petals were still attached to the flowers and were still showing a strong colour !  A couple of the leaves had petal colour on them as well – obviously couldn't make up its mind what it wanted to be!

      Hi Tersha, I really like what you have captured here, great light, colours and the simplicity of the composition. It would be very marketable to the right audience. keep clicking.

      Tersha, this is an incredibly interesting photograph.  The texture and detail of the center of the poppy, combined with the dying petal, are really beautiful.  Your colours are very rich and vibrant.  What a terrific image.  Thank you.

      David, this is a terrific image.  It makes me feel sorry for the little Gecko.  What I must say, is that the photograph makes me want to keep looking at it.  Great contrast, great reflection and a great image.  Thank you.

      Nice shot Diane. Lots of different textures makes me want to touch everything and feel the brittleness or softness. Lovely DOF too.

    When you spend 6 months of the year in winter , dead flowers are a prevalent subject.
