Thank you Photoshop.
Soft and hard, light and dark, opposites attract.
When I first saw these little watering cans only form and color stood out...then I noticed what I was missing, the story.
How did they find a parking space for this monster in Manhattan?
Cool Old Motor Home in perhaps a more interesting detailed view and composition. How do you feel about that?
By the way, the F and 21 in the sign to the right were actually part of text saying "Store For Rent" and "212-753- etc. phone number"- any takers? If so, the clue to its NYC location is present in the photo.
Of course as you can see, one petal was missing. :-)
I was so appreciative of its beauty that I stuck the bottom of its stem into a pocket of the camera-bag hanging on my back, allowing it to project proudly and clearly upwards for the world to admire. Unfortunately shortly afterwards in an eatery, while standing on line, some horrific roughian banged into me crushing the little beauty, knocking off all but a couple of its fragile dried petals and sending it crashing onto the floor.
I hope you appreciate the little rose's charm, beauty, and now its sacrifice. Be not sad however, for it lives on, in our hearts.
(If and when I regain my composure I will, perhaps, post more photographs of my session with the little flower.) ;)
