I love dandelion clocks, and seeds, and seed heads and pollen......!
Most summers I attempt to photograph a few dandelion clocks in the vain hope I will get the 'perfect' photo of one - I probably never will, but it doesn't stop me trying! This years attempts have been put together for
After destroying quite a few in my attempt to photograph a whole one I put the remaining tatty ones in a glass bottle and photographed them as they disintegrated.
I thought I'd also show a couple of my favourite art installations with seed heads as the inspiration.
Isn't this beautiful - it's by Regine Ramseier and I found the image over at the Jealous Curator. There are more fab pictures over there of this amazing installation.
This is the incredible Seed Cathedral by Thomas Heatherwick, built for the 2010 Shanghai Expo. It's six stories high and studded with 60,000 translucent rods. It was built as a platform to show the work of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and their Millenium seed bank. Each filament contains seeds from the bank. There is more information over on his website
