Seeding the Wind II

This series of photos captures flowers as they transition from bud to bloom to death. 
Bouquets of flowers have a special symbolism in most cultures. Flowers mark every kind of occasion and are always given in a spirit of goodwill even when they're meant as condolences. As well, the deliberate selection, intentional arrangement, and desire to create beauty and symmetry as a gift, underscore the best in humankind. The symbolism of flowers in combination with their fleeting beauty is a poignant reminder of our own beauty and frailty.
