Auckland Tour 3- Botanical BW

Once more from the Domain Wintergardens before we move on: Plants also bring out the black and white in me. Contrast, shadows, and lines virtually demand b+w.

The spikes on this one fascinated me. 

Cacti are very good subjects as well. I’ve not seen a cactus quite like this little one.

Some shots also stand up to both color and b+w as this fern shot exemplifies. The original image had a background that was more in focus than I wanted, so I did a little work on the image to bring out the fern. 

I can’t decide whether I like this or the color one that I posted last time better.


Unabashadly shameless plug, ignore if you so desire:

These photos are  available for sale. A simple click on one will get you to the “buy” option. You can then choose from prints of many sizes and all sorts of specialty items like mugs and phone cases.
