Decay

Sometimes when life isn't going in a doable direction a bit of decay seems to invade my brain; then It's time to breathe deeply and push the decay out before it settles in permanently. Apps turned what might have been a mundane image of two pink puffs on a vine into a depiction of how my body presently feels. And if I'm to believe Miller's quote, below, possibly the present condition will evolve into something wonderful.

quote:
I have always looked upon decay as being just as wonderful and rich an expression of life as growth.
Henry Miller

 The white elegant blooms of the bougainvillea are difficult to photograph; the leaves are windblown and the brick wall often peeks through the foliage. This is the mood I was looking for when I photographed the spray of blooms at sunset. One layer of texture added in PSE was all it took.
