Nomomortia III

A dying flower embraced by spiders web.

This photograph is not as much a photograph as it is a graphic product, a collage. And even though I labeled it under 'one photo a week', the photo of the flower was taken last week, during my vacation. My blog, my rules!

The flower is one of the many interesting objects I found during my urban exploration field trip - in the countryside. An abandoned greenhouse with the doors wide open. I guess I was trespassing, but I left everything untouched. In this photograph I especially like the spiders web that is looking so soft, and is embracing the dead flower. And I love the fact that the dead flower still shines with beautiful colours.

Nomomortia II

Predator fly feeding on another insect.

The brutal nature, or the nature of brutality. Or just the way of nature...

I found this killer fly sucking the guts out of another fly on the wall of our sauna. Inspite of the photographs tragic tail, the two counterparts do fill their purposes in the depicted story - and in our reality. They play their parts par excellens.

The Gift

A medallion in the palm of a childs hand.

My daughter holding a medallion, a gift by her godfather, my oldest friend. Looks pretty fine in B&W. I think I should try out some new angles on this subject.

Going away next week. I´m planning on doing a lot of photography. Not sure about uploading anything, though...
