Guardians

 

Nikon D80, ISO 200, f8, 1/350 sec, 300mm efl, Capture NX2

I was out walking today when this 'Darth Vader' like stone caught my eye. It seemed to be standing guard by the iron gate, but between the hardness of the stone and the iron there were these daisies - little yellow-hearted contradictions.

"If you love me
Bring me flowers
Wild daisies
Clutched in your fist
Like a torch ... " (from "Wild daisies" by Bub Bridger)
