Holly Red

I did a series of hollyhocks a few months ago... wispy paper thin petals with long bulbous centers clustered along the thick green stem. During my summer photo shoots I would discover them tucked away in a corner of a back alley... sometimes they stood tall and proud... sometimes they were bent over from a strong wind, and sometimes they were propped up against a fence or wall looking fragile... but still beautiful.
