I usually take pictures of flowers because a) they’re convenient – we have lots of them in the garden thanks to my wife’s never ending ministrations; b) my wife likes me taking pictures of her flowers; c) I like the bright colors – they cheer me up. However, because of the above I’ve been taking a lot of flower pictures of late and I’m getting a bit bored with taking flower pictures. So I thought I’d see what a black and white conversion would do to one of them. I was interested in seeing what/if the picture would lose something if the colors were taken away. I quite like the result.
