Photography: A Matter of Life and Death

Last time we went to the gardens, I focused most of my photography on the newly growing flowers.  Even still, I could not help but be captivated by the still standing flowers of yesterday.

Though devoid of live, they filled the scene with beauty.  So today, I shall share with you the other view of the gardens – one of gentle decay.  I guess it is rather fitting, since it snowed this weekend.  Our trees are bent over from the weight of snow and flowers that started growing are now hidden.  I am sure they will be okay, most of them (if not all of them) because this is just the way things are here.  Always a surprise.  Enjoy!

      Yes it is. Funny thing is – I would never have taken an image of a dying flower before. But taking up a camera, you start to see the beauty in other things. I kinda like that 🙂
