“Bleach All the Colors” Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge, Aug 12, 2017

IMG_0107

Bleach all the colors from the flowers. Cancel out the sun.
Stay the music. Still the dance. Tell laughter it is done.
She will not walk this way again so all must cease to walk.
Her conversation’s over. The whole world must not talk.
Earth upon its axis should still its constant motion.
The cook must quiet his cooking pots, the chemist trash his potion.
The universe must end itself now that my true love’s dead,
and I lay myself beside her on our wedding bed.

Red Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, June 19, 2017

I had a yellow and purple Spanish Dancer hibiscus that I shot yesterday all ready to post. Then I saw this red one, just born today, and changed my mind. Here’s a little closer view:

Hibiscus: Black and White Sunday and Cee’s Flower of the Day, May 28, 2017

 

Version 2IMG_5147 (2)

The prompt was to publish a photo in both color and black and white.  Luckily, I had just, on a whim, tried converting this hibiscus shot to black and white and was shocked to discover that I liked it better devoid of its gorgeous colors.  Here is the site if you’d like to play along: https://bopaula.wordpress.com/2017/05/28/black-white-sunday-after-and-before-y1-05/
I’m also using this for Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge.

The deer misunderstand and think these are hibiscuits, but this one has survived.  Taken in my friend Allenda’s hillside stone garden in Huntsville, Alabama.
