A bed of flowers

Nature reclaiming a pile of old mattresses dumped outside a derelict building. B&W conversion of a previous upload ...

I have an alternative conversion, I shall save that for another day.
Thanks for looking,

Another well composed and processed image, Moira.

It's only a matter of time before every mattress get's 'laid to rest' or cremated.

At school our chemistry teacher was a Mr Natttrass... no prizes for guessing his nickname.

The flowers are like small faces with eyes.

Pretty little flowers, looked good in colour and equally as good in mono, Moira 😀

A lovely abstract, can't decide between colour and Black & White version after viewing this...colour was featuring the aggressiveness of nature, and it is the gloominess, Ken have chosen a lovely title too...Superb...

Lovely work as usual Moira!

They make totally different statements. A great example of how the artist's vision can tell many different stories. I'm sure the next conversion will be equally brilliant.

To be honest I did not twig it was a mattress until I read your intro. Not that matters as the main item is the flowers. They seem to have a translucence to them that the colour version did not seem to have.

People often wonder why others would choose to render flower shots as black and white, but I think that it can add to the narrative, especially in an image such as this, good choice Moira.
