flowers of the damned by Jenny Ryan

a field of flowers in Holy City in the Wildlife Refuge near Lawton / Fort Sill, OK. This is behind a giant statue of Jesus. They also have cobble stone buildings, a church and other structures. It’s home to the longest running passion play in the US. I’m not religious, but for some reason I’m drawn to this place.

I played around with it in photoshop… this is the end result…

Not sure why, but the title is the only thing that my mind would come up with…. I wonder what that says about me lol!

    Interesting title. I like the image, different to the subtle tones normally associated with this subject.

  • I sit and stare at an image until something pops in my head that isn’t “flower” lol! For some reason this is all I could come up with today… Considering where it’s shot…it kind of fits for me… IDK… =)

    Thanks Ric!!! ;)

    I really like this, Jen. First look, it reminds me of what it might be like to see through denim. The soft speckling really softens it.

  • Thanks Maureen! Denim… hadn’t thought of it like that! Great idea! ;)
