  1. This image is particularly fascinating.

    Once again, a beautifully clean photograph and technically excellent.

    The green-white colour scheme is inverted through the windows and the flowers – the grass is green at the bottom white on the top, in contrast to the flowers.

    Narcissus flowers have of course a very particular meaning in our culture because of the myth, so this is always in the background, as with the theme of mirroring – the pool in this case is the glass.

    Why the twice? A reference to the flowers, to reproduction (twice as in multiplication) and the continuity of our uniqueness in the totality of life.

    It is particularly interesting that one of the flowers sits against a cross and is being caressed by the one in the corner – immediately an image of the Virgin and the Christ (Pietas) comes up…
