About this image

The subject of organic decay is one that I have visited a number of times previously in my still life photography. It speaks of the end of nature’s life cycle and consequently can evoke a strong emotional response. The use of monochrome adds to the depth of mood, stripping the subject back to more basic tonal values, and accentuates the feeling of decline.
