I love the roses. The second flower looks mechanical … reminiscent of the work of the Vorticists.

Thanks George. Had to look up Vorticists – Make for a good Sci-Fi story or a photo series. 🙂 The image is of a passion flower. They look particularly exotic/alien in monochrome – part organic, part mechanical.

Yes! When the Giant Passion Flower reclaims the earth… Creepy. Do you know about Kudzu? It literally takes over everything in its path. Dean talked about planting it around the house so it would grow over the roof and insulate the house! He was fascinated by the plant. 🙂

Yes heard about that one. Talk about invasive species. Reminds me a bit of when my father planted some ornamental bamboo back in the late 60s. He had a devil of a time getting rid of the stuff. At the time we still had a septic tank and the roots were making a stampede towards it. One man’s ornamental plant is another man’s 1950s movie monster. Day of the Triffids coming to a garden near you. 😀

Isn’t it amazing how lovely these flowers are even without their colour? Nice job.

Thanks very much. The monochrome photograph is a different medium from colour. The information is altered. We give more priority to form, texture and intensity of shades of light. Those details stand out and we see those aesthetic elements first. I think that is why some mundane objects appear more interesting in B&W photographs than in colour.
