We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

Evening light catching,
thistle arrows waiting,
defensive welcoming,
the gentle touch of wind.

A pair of wild thistle heads, shot in York, North Yorkshire, England.

Part of a series of images inspired by Karl Blossfeldt and his amazing images of the structures of plants.

Converted into black and white.

Shot on an Olympus E30
