The almost still water on the fountain mirrors the garden and the sun lit sky, which contrasts starkly with the dark fountain and the shadow it leaves on the ground. The flower glides to the edge the fountain, and photograph was taken right before the flower slid over, onto the ground.
The photograph, in essence, captures one of the hard truths of life. The flower or any object of beauty, no matter how perfect, no matter how comfortable or glorious in its heyday, at some point of time will fall into a fountain with a minor splash and stay afloat, gradually carried towards the edge of the fountain by the light water current and before you know it, due to forces beyond its control, will slide over the edge and will fall into the ground. A contemporary print that will make one reflect on life.
