Fading beauty

By this afternoon the tulips I was given by a pupil a couple of weeks ago had rather passed their prime. I was about to commit them to the compost bin when it struck me that, even in their decaying state, they still have a certain beauty about them – the fact that they’ve lost a lot of their natural moisture actually emphasises the texture of their petals. I thought I’d take one last photo before disposing of them and decided a simple white, slightly backlit approach would be best to bring out their fading beauty. Now they can go into the compost to help nourish the plants we have in our garden next year – nothing goes to waste!
