279. Bouquet of Skull


Arranged Cut Flowers (7ft x 8.5ft [2.13m x 2.6m]). A jumbo thanks to my friend Shelia who got me these discarded flowers from a friend at a local wholesale florist. This was shot at the end of her street and I stood on the top of her panel truck to get this image. Here's a shot from the ground...
For a sense of scale here's Shelia measuring it for me...


And here are a couple of the neighborhood kids helping to dismantle the skull, by making arrangements for their grandmother...

I love the use of colour! The petals and buds make for a great outline enhancement. I bet that smelled wonderful too.

I like it when the skulls are on the larger scale. Great work.

Kudos to the kids for giving Grandma flowers, too.
