A gate in Barcelona, with stylized blooms and thorns.
For somebody who is not especially partial to flowers, I sure do take and post a lot of photos of flowers. I guess that’s why this week’s friday foto finder theme of “floral” made me think to find something floral that wasn’t actually flowers. Turns out I also did that once when the theme was “flower,” what with my iron flowers of hardware on a rusty vintage tractor. This time, though, I have a range of metal flowers from near and far that were actually designed to depict flowers.
Close-up of the Barcelona blooms.
Flower-shaped window grates at Boston University.
A Dublin streetlamp with shamrocks. (More leafy than flowery, but still flora if not actually floral…)
An iron bench with a flower pattern (and a lion face) at a Massachusetts farm.
