Plant, in Boscastle, Cornwall; 10 Sept 2013.

Just as I emerged from the Witchcraft Museum, full of intrigued and surreal thoughts, this appeared at my feet.

All else is harsh black and white, manmade, angular and strong, but these few green leaves – soft and eminently vulnerable – are pushing up through it all, into the light.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    An excellent composed image – nature against culture! – full of beauty, contrasts and symbolism.

    Witchcraft museum, eh? I suppose it would have been too much to hope for to have found the waterway grate to be in the shape of a hexagon rather than a square, but one could always imagine the possibility for a spell. Oh, and by the way, I like which craft you chose to recolor the plants trying to escape the presumed cauldron below and finally reaching the light after all, hopefully not eventually to wind up trampled or run over after all their toil and trouble.

      H ha ha!!! having exited the museum – from which an American tourist had just had to rush outside in nauseous near hysteria – seeing this image did strike a chord – and hexagonal would have been just right! 🙂
