  1. This is my favourite image of the series of photographs of nature in the urban environment so far.

    In my view, the most striking thing about this image is the use of focus. This is a close up shot, and consequently, there is an artistic use of blurring that is going on.

    Most noticeably, the blurring occurs across the site of the flower, with those two buds at ‘its ear’. The flower looks away from us. She is bashful, it is hard to see her. The bough she looks at seems to be disappearing in a blur as well.

    Underneath the bough, if one reads, is written PEEP, right at the bottom of the photograph…
    Hidden looks, fences everywhere, borders, the flower is both sensuous, feminine and secretive…
