  1. The contrast is remarkable… the pink jewels of nature and vibrant green life, against the rough road’s pavement and sewer. You did a great job with capturing this, and yes – Irony is a perfect title. Also enjoyed the descriptive verse and your narrative on your other blog. Wonderful Meryl and may your Mother’s Day be grand!

  2. And ‘Scattered” for this post ~ ( & Irony for it’s sister on Learning to See Blog) 🙂 Both titles tell a whole story along with this image!!

    • Thanks Robyn, for your appreciation of this beautiful sewer..it’s amazing how perspective can affect how we see things and you’re right…the reason it works is largely due to the complementary colors…

    I like the shape of your poem. Is it meant to be a tree, a vase, maybe a waterfall? Another good name for this pic would be “Cherry Bomb”. How about “Grate Expectations”?

    • They are just evolving into these shapes…so it’s whatever you imagine it to be…and wouldn’t you know I just took out the audio tape for Grate Expectations from the library…:)

    I thought “Grate Expectations” was a pretty good pun, IMHO. The sewer grate looks like a hungry mouth and tongue, waiting to devour the sea of pink petals.
