New Beginnings


This photograph is part of a series I named  "Flower Trash," which I shot over a few spring and summer months about 10 years ago while living in Chapel Hill, NC.  I noticed the flowers I picked or purchased transformed as they began to wilt and decay in the vase.  Also during that time I was often shooting with a macro (close-up) lens, so I began to arrange flower debris in my kitchen sink or counter top.  I don't recall which flower housed these fluffy airborne seeds that would be carried by the breeze to a patch of ground somewhere to begin a new lifecycle.
