> Poppy seedhead
As I studied the bare framework through the isolation of the camera I saw increasingly the beauty of the minute detail while equally recognising the monumentality of the form as a whole. Here was a tiny fragile thing yet it took on for me the symbolism of the whole life cycle. Lasting beyond death in human terms, it had become a thing of even greater transient beauty before breaking down again to earth.
The potential interpretation and symbolism I found in these poppy seed heads inspired me to begin this on-going series of images of plant forms through maturity to decay.
