  1. This is so beautiful and yet so sad. Crushed flowers on pavements.

    • Thanks Susan. For me it’s also imagining the range of possibilities behind the event. Who had bought them and for what reason? Did they simply fall out of a bag by mistake? Were they thrown on the pavement after an argument? Certainly something poignant about the beautiful form and colour crushed and smeared on the pavement.
