Talking Flowers

Film Photography (Multiple Exposures)

‘Take flowers’ she said, pointing at the blooms that filled the room. ‘Have you heard flowers talking?’ Greatly intrigued, I shook my head; the idea of flowers talking was quite new to me. ‘Well, I can assure you that they do talk,’ she said. ‘They hold long conversations with each other... at least I presume them to be conversations, for I don't understand what they're saying, naturally. It’s a question of wave-length. Another thing that you don’t notice when you’re young is that flowers have personality. They are different from each other, just as people are. Look, I’ll show you.’
