Solitary tributes

One thing I like doing is looking for little 'sets' of photographs. Sometimes, separated by months, even years, you find groups of photographs with a common theme. Processing film over Christmas I found these three – all about 'tributes'. A toy abandoned at a bus-stop flares in the low sunlight with an odd significance. A splash of colour from a single vase of flowers in a bitterly cold and deserted winter graveyard. Flowers laid in the hand of the Sultanganj Buddha in Birmingham Museum.
