16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
“...thorn in my side....”

This is an image taken which i have rephotographed recently due to its deterioration being in storage. In its day it would have a been a commanding Scotch thistle. The reinterpretation for me now views the image as that perpetual reminder of the necessity for us humans to address the thorn in our own side as we work together to seek answers on how we can preserve and maintain our World for future generations.
