The Weekend in Black and White

I shot this wonderfully spiky tulip in both
full (hot pink) color and black and white.
The biggest difference?  In the color photo,
what you see is . . . the color.  But in
monochrome, you notice everything else.

[To see more monochromes, visit Dragonstar's meme.] 


  1. It's amazing, Alexa. I thought for a moment it was a sea anemone {a very stationary one!}

  2. Alexa....I want one...a spiky tulip. I WANT one right now! You've gotta love those unique petals. What a great black and white. Good job :-) genie

  3. Yes! That's what I love so much about black and white - you see it all! Your tulip rivals my mutant daffodil for complexity, but is rather more neatly arranged.

  4. Great photo, kind og shark-tulip?
    Perfect using B&W!

  5. The spiky tulip is a splendid subject for a B&W photo!

  6. Oh I LOVE this! the light, the soft textures! Just beautiful.
