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.

  1. 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! 🙂


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
