Capturing the good, the bad and the ugly of lesser-known Spain and now Southeast Asia
(1/269, F2, ISO100, 3mm)
Thanks so much, Dina, for taking a look at them!
could be I have one more color of Frangipani to go 😉
Have agreat week, Ron.
great effect between of contrast of graphism which is a little grunge and this beautiful flower
Merci beaucoup, i thought the grungy human part was a great background for these subtle fading colours of nature…
A contrast between our creation and nature’s.
That was my thought exactly, although this example is maybe a bit unfair on us 😉
Have a good week, Ron.
Thank you. Please do the same.
wow a great picture.
Thanks a lot, Robert!
Beautiful contrasts and colors!
Thanks very much, Rene!
Wonderful capture, Ron!
Thanks very much, Paula! Walked past this roster many times since but never was this frangipani laid out as perfectly as then 😉
Have a great week, Ron.
🙂 You too, Ron
Que lindo! So gorgeous!
Muchas gracias, Anne Marie, glad to hear you enjoyed this one!
All the best, Ron.
Thank you for visiting and the like of my Weekly Photo Challenge post “Monument”.
You are welcome, thanks for stopping by here, hope you have a great day, Ron.
Love the contrast between man and nature.
Muchas gracias, Emilio, exactly my interest and meaning behind this one 😉
It’s still looking beautiful.
Totally agree, doesnt take more than two days though; and even at home in some water they wont last longer, but they will give a great smell till the end…
Thanks for stopping by, Janina, have a great day, Ron.
Wat een prachtige diepe kleur rood.
Dank je, Wilma! Dat maakte deze interessanter dan al de andere gevallen bloemen op mijn pad 🙂
Groet en fijne dag, Ron.
Thank you, hope I can do that again 😉
This actually reminds me a lot of the post I wrote today of the High Line park in NYC! After the track was abandoned, plants started growing on the tracks juxtaposing natural and human design, just like this picture.
Hi Amelie, some years ago i visited the High Line Park and loved it; such a great way of keeping that history and making a new one!
Hope all is well, thanks for stopping by, Ron.
What a place to grow and bloom.
Thanks, Allan! Actually it grew above it on a tree, but my interest is in the slow death on this human made structure on the ground 😉
No more bloom for this one…
Thanks a lot, Alois! And they stell smell great til the last end…
Very, very lovely-the contrast between man-made and the natural world is quite jarring-
Hi Meg, thanks for the compliment, exactly what I wanted to show and saw when starting this series, hope to find more of these scenes!
All the best, greetings, Ron.
Amazing colors – great photo – you did a nice job seeing this!
Thanks, Truels! As I am always on the lookout for dying flowers on human structure since I started this series and being a shoegazer these sometimes help 😉
Greetings, my friend, Ron.
I love the colours and the ‘closing’ of the grill intrigues me ….
Thanks, Noeline, don´t really understand what you eman with the ´closing´? The reddish bars?
Hope all is great, greetings, Ron.
Mmmm – didn’t really know how to explain it! What I mean is the narrowing gap between the red bars towards the top of the picture. Somehow, to me, it seems like quite a strong element in your photograph – but don’t ask me to explain why! 🙂
Sorry for asking, totally understand it now, does make it a bit more ´closed´ as you said, otherwise it would have been very straight and also nice to have more of the side of those colorful bars!
Thanks for taking such a thorough look, Noelle, hope you have a great weekend, Ron.
Very well spotted and captured!
Thank you! That´s the bonus of being a shoegazer 😉
Have a good day, Ron.
Thank you, Gav, loved the industrial background here too; always handy to be a shoegazer in this series 😉
Thanks a lot, Randall, glad you enjoyed it!
Have a great week, Ron.
Love this one the best of all your flowers must die series so far! Lovely.
Thank you, Angeline, I do agree, although it´s difficult to downgrade the others for me 😉
but the background is the most interesting so far, I think!
Warm greetings from KL, Ron.
Reblogged this on Amazing Fine Art.
Thank you very much, James, always a pleasure to be reblogged into your collection 😉
It has the sorry look of a memorial placed where death took place, blood droplets on petals, all RIP mood to it. As always your spectacular color finds.
Hi Barbara, oh yeah, saw those rusty rotten spots, but could be last drops indeed! This one was totally made by the industrial colors in the back in my opinion with its own grey drops.
Thanks for your thorough look as always, hope all is well, Ron.
Wonderful colours in this one, Ron!
So much beauty and sadness in this image.
And the knowledge that flowers must die (I see the symbolism… that we all must die, and that scares me a lot and I’ve always been scared of death).
Hi Malin, thank you for your visit and view! The main idea is definitely about the dying of flowers, but also that even in dying we obstruct them from giving their last breath and energy back to the soil with roads, pavements and in this a sewer cover. The title -like lots of them- comes from a title of song from a very obscure german krautrock band; very weird unsettling stuff (too)!
(I always think it´s weird to not be scared of death, i guess that´s possible only if the situation on this earth gets unbearable)
have a good week and enjoy what you´re up to, all the best, Ron.
oh, here´s that weird music 😉
I agree, I think it’s kind of weird too not being scared of death.
But as you say, it’s possible if the situation gets unbearable.
I can understand those who feel death as a relief, for example those who have a lot of health problems and other things that stops possibilities to have a normal life.
About your link (Ash Ra Tempel) – yes, weird… but I like some of it. 🙂
Hi Malin, exactly what I meant when your body isnt able to carry you!
As for the music, i like their instrumental stuff the best, the vocals are a bit off here in my opinion, but the title worked for me 😉
Have a good weekend, Ron.
I agree with you Ron. The instrumental stuff was really good. 🙂
Have a nice weekend, my friend.
Muchas gracias! Always a pleasure to have your enthousiasm around 😉
Have a great week, Ron.
Lekker vet contrast, Ron!, prachtig. Ik zat me af te vragen: heeft deze serie wellicht iets te maken met ‘loskomen van’ het prachtige Spanje? Groet, harrie.
Dank, Harrie, ben gek op contrasten, hier vooral de softe kleuren van die bloem en die industrial achtergrond! Geloof het niet met het loskomen van Spanje hoor, dat gaat nooit meer lukken en die behoefte heb ik ook niet 😉
OK, houden zo!
the contrast of roughness and fragility expressed in magnificent colours.
Thanks for having a close look, Eva!
Hope you have a great week, greetings, Ron.
