Daily Practice 180/365

Title: "Glorious Decay"
(click image to view larger)
Around the house, when my darling wife declares that a vase of flowers is ready for its "portrait", she means they are gracefully starting to decline. I find that stately slide into decrepitude appealing because of the change in shape, the accentuation of textures. These fine specimens were actually outside in the garden, the rhododendron blossoms long past their riotous colour, subsuming into themselves. Delicious!

This feels very abstract to me, so much so that all sense of scale evaporates, and I feel as if it's an arid landscape that I could walk through.
