The Weekend in Black and White

The colors of these flowers at the New York
Botanical Garden
couldn't have been more vibrant—and
yet I like them even better in black and white.  Go figure.

  1. This sure does it for me. For some reason my eye keeps getting pulled to the sharply focused flower in the top-left corner.

  2. Beautiful flower photo. Sometimes I think we can get a kind of sensory overload with too much colour - black and white lets us concentrate on the shapes.

  3. Beautiful flowers in B&W!!
