After looking at it for a while I think it is a bridge overpass (or something) that has flowers put on the ground in memoriam of someone who died (suicide?) from the bridge.

It is creepy and all but it is difficult to tell exactly what the pic is of.


2 Samuel 9:7-8, "So David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually.” Then he bowed himself, and said, “What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?”

yeah, looks definetly like posts, high up, maybe even top floor of a building, and flowers tied to the post, maybe perhaps where someone took their last breath.. indeed hard to tell, what gives me perspective is seeign the parking lines through the post, it comes together after that

WOW!GREAT,GENIUS SHOT,LOVE it. The only critics would be - signature looks out of place, IMO you should place it on that surface as if it was engraved, then It would bw perfect!

moody...eerie, even without knowing the background the pic looks like it has something to say. Like it a lot.

i like it, but i do not like the selective coloring. its a dark and gloomy picture - colorizing the flowers takes away from the HORROR of it all......:p

Lighting (flash + modest dodging? - or something else?) works well in this picture. Selective coloring is not too distracting either. Interesting!

Thanks for the feedback, and yes this is the point where someone jumped to his death from the bridge it wasnt my intention to shoot this [not usually so depressive] but whilst shooting the city and its bridges i was drawn to the spot and felt quite sad seeing how the flowers had also perished.
