there are three elements in this image: the blossom, the stem, and the leaf. i can’t help but read emotions into them. the flower’s slightly coquettish looking away from the camera. the the curve of the stem, as if the flower is standing with one cocked hip. the dismissive wrist turn of the leaf, as if waving away a triviality, or maybe even flipping back the flower’s bouncy head of hair. it’s all confident girlishness for me. i wonder what you see.
