The Weekend in Black and White

Can't tell you what this plant is, but
I just love the way the leaves
almost look like they've been engraved
with that clearly delineated design.

  1. Appropriately, it looks like a mosaic plant. Wiki says that it is a native to tropical rainforest in South America, mainly Peru. So, we are still in South America here. Although the Fittonia verschaffeltii specimen seen here is much closer to your home.

    Thank you for making this image much closer to my home. Now I have an indoor plant I don’t have to water.

  2. Wonderful textures! This plant is a perfect back and white subject.

  3. I love the textures and patterns. Great black and white shot!

  4. Excellent photo! Good eye....

  5. They look like just the framework for the leaves if you look at it long enough. Very cool shot.

  6. I know nada about plants and photography but that is a great photo of a very interesting plant.
    It is something I could frame and put on my wall but then my wife would asy it doesn't go with the southwestern theme of our house.

  7. Beautiful!

    I think I took a too complex approach to the prompt ;-P

  8. It reminds me of some kind of vegetable or fruit but for the life of me I cannot think of what it is, or maybe my mind is just going in my old age. I think the picture is fantastic and it does make the plant look very interesting and complex. It is truly full of it's own complexity's and it seems like no two leaves are exactly alike.

    Thanks for sharing such a complex plant with us for this weeks Theme Thursday. I hope you are having a great week filled with many more complex pictures.

    God bless.

  9. It's beautiful! I have seen this plant many times, but never seen it photographed so beautifully!
