Murder Suicide

Sure, you can believe flowers are all joy and sunshine and fizzy pop, but that’s what Big Floral wants you to think. That’s what the Floral Industrial Complex has brainwashed us to believe. But here’s the photo that proves flowers are not the friendly harmless gift FTD wants you to think they are.

Technical Stuff: Unless you’re doing something crazy-cool with the lighting, flowers are not really a very interesting subject. The idea is to find something out of place, like an odd colour or two dead flowers connected like one’s sucking the life out of the other. At least they’re fairly easy to find and set up, all you need to do is walk onto some old lady’s property and hope she doesn’t have a gun. Most of them don’t.

I took this photo last year… this was pretty much when I started carrying my pocket digital around with me everywhere I went. I can’t really think of anything else to say… it’s two flowers in a cool state of disintegration and the photo pretty much captures the relationship I have with my mother. Other than that, no big deal.

    Heh. You took that on my birthday.

    I prefer growing my own and enjoying them that way. Cheaper too.

    …that’d actually be a cool birthday thing. Like if on a birthday we took shots of ourselves wherever and passed them on to whoever is having the birthday. Jesus, that’s so chick. I have to start reading more blogs about sports and tits…

    You’re secretly a chick, right?

    Plus, I like tits.

    Everybody loves tits… which is why it’s so weird that so few people enjoy it when I take photos of theirs.
