Day Two – Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) HAPPY SPRING!
Recap: I have been invited by Ana of Celebrating Sunshine to participate in a Five Day Black and White Photography Challenge. Her blog is full of cheerful, inspirational posts exploring the positive side of life. Please visit her blog to see for yourself. Thank you, Ana for inviting me to this challenge.
There are only two rules for the black and white photography challenge:
On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.
Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.
I’m normally drawn to color photography over black and white, so I accepted the challenge to see if I could improve my appreciation for it.
Today I invite the Heather at Our Adventures Up North to join us in the challenge. Her photos are beyond gorgeous, taken in the lake region of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. No pressure, however, this is about having fun!
Although I love COLOR, COLOR, COLOR, I’m also liking these B & W’s. Texture becomes most important & these bloodroot leaves are gorgeous!
Thank you, my dear. Another few weeks before these beauties again put on their show for us. Hope you are feeling better.
You have bloodroot up? We are still a couple of weeks or so from being blessed with that.
I wish! we are under at least a foot of snow, still. This was from a few years ago. Thanks for your visit!
Eliza, I absolutely love this photograph. Because it is in black & white causes my attention to trace the shape of the flower echoed in the leaves. They seem to be hands reaching upward, accepting blessings from above. Thanks for such a lovely photo.
Micheal, thank you so much for sharing such an inspiring interpretation. It makes the image all the better for it. 🙂
B and W really reveals things that I think are overlooked when the image is in color.
True, it does change the way we look at a subject without color to grab our eye. Thanks, Kim!
Beautiful image, Eliza 🙂
Monochrome did bring out all the details and there are no distractions 🙂
Thanks a lot for sharing and have a beautiful weekend 🙂
Thank you, dear Sreejith! Hope your weekend is a special one!
Thank you, Cindy!
This is an amazing picture! I love the texture of the leaf. Great details! 🙂
Thanks, Ana! Having fun with this challenge. 🙂
What a gorgeous pattern of veins in the leaf! Black and white does a wonderful job of showing texture. Lovely photo, Eliza 😉
Thank you – I’m learning that, too!
Another good choice for B&W. And since it’s just as spring-y in my world as it is in yours, I might dig in and do this just for fun 🙂
Yay, thanks Heather. Can’t wait to see what you have for us! 🙂
Love the texture of the leaves. Great photo.
Thank you kindly! It is one of our ephemeral spring natives. It blooms in April and is dormant by June. It is spread by ants that carry off the seed to their pantries, eat the outside, leaving the inside to sprout. Kinda cool, huh? 🙂
