Pole dancers

 I photographed a protea flower that was standing in a vase on our dining table. The light was coming down from the velux roof window above giving very clear detail of the flower.I placed a black backdrop behind so that the flower was clear. This enabled me to turn the photo upside down to create the character. As the protea had a very straight stem it triggered the concept of the Pole Dancers. The use of bright colours create the theatrical artwork.
