Who says you can't photograph flowers in B&W? This photo is lovely. You captured the isness of this flower perfectly.

Thanks for dropping by my place.

Lovely image. I like the flower, of course, and also the bud awaiting its turn to wow us!

I never think of photographing flowers in black and white. I must adjust my thinking. Wonderful!

the best shot I´ve seen today, mine included. :)

I love all about it. And it is a bit different around the stamen too.

That's beautiful, the water drops really add a nice extra punch.

I wasn't feeling this zen about the non-stop rain and 97% humidity we've had over the past weeks of packing and moving! But your lovely monochrome flower with raindrops and quote put things back into their proper perspective. Thanks, Karen!

Flowers are lovely even in B&W. Great photo!

Mona Sweden said...

Beautiful! This photo serves as proof that flowers can be very pretty in B&W.

Hi there - I like that picture. I think we can become too fond of colour and end up forgetting about form and composition.

I feel some B/W coming on.

Cheers
