petals of metal (friday foto finder: floral)



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.

Another fence in Barcelona.


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.
