Faded Blooms

Hopton, Georgie
"The bucket of flowers in Faded Blooms had been gathering in my studio as I photographed the living and used it to discard the dying specimens. I was about to take it out to the compost, when I suddenly saw it for the exquisite picture it could be; Theceruleum blue of the plastic bucket set off the various pinks and pale yellow of the peonies and carnations beautifully."
