A bed of flowers 2

By mrswoolybill
Nature is reclaiming a pile of mattresses dumped outside a derelict social club. This is alternative processing for a shot previously uploaded. I like this effect, for me it hints at cold, organic earthiness.
There has been a development since I first uploaded from this location, there is now a proposal to convert the club into a number of homes. This will save what was once a very fine stone building from demolition.
Thanks for looking,

And once again, Nature will lose it's reclamation battle and be forced to take a back seat.
Lovely. GrinGrinGrinGrin

Sad that nature has to do the job that people failed to do but I suppose mattresses are not easy to get rid of. I do like the way you have given this a graphic, grainy quality Moira.

Flowers often do not work so well in mono. This is a beautifully processed exception Moira. Excellent composition.

Your processing here works well on this subject, Moira 👍 Good to know the building isn't going to be demolished 😀

That sounds like a positive outcome, homes are needed.
But, it depends on what type of homes are proposed.

I like the grain you have added here Moira, a timeless feel for this image that suits it so well.

Best Matt

From the border in, every grainy detail contributes to this striking journalistic image, including the nature/mattress contrast. Deft darkroom hand ups the ante.

Thanks everyone and thanks to Joline and Robert for the UAs.
Keith, no real details available yet, it's outline. I'm keeping a look out for further information.
