The Shape of Things
This is another rather random assortment of objects that resided on our kitchen counter (for too long the Fashion Queen might say) before I got around to taking them to my studio. My main interest in these objects for this photograph were the two dried flower blossoms. I was intrigued by their shape, form, texture and color altogether though the title of the image suggests it might be just the one thing. Something regarding their color might actually have been a better choice on which to base the title as it is of particular note given they are dried blossoms from a yellow primrose plant. When in full bloom, the blossoms are a lovely shade of yellow (not a surprising fact given the name), but for whatever reason when they start to wilt and die, they immediately start turning this striking red color.
