Some little bursts of colour, from the Victorian Flower Garden at Hamilton Gardens, New Zealand. Images: Su Leslie 2019
When we think of monochrome in photography, it’s often as an alternative to colour — or even as its opposite.
We might allow sepia — with its connotations of nostalgia.
But sometimes, nature presents us with monochrome images; green leaves, a bunch of flowers, or a perfect blue day on the lake.
I’m sure there are others.
No falling leaves in this part of the world, but blossom is definitely disappearing, albeit slowly.
I know I posted this song a few months ago, but it’s the first thing I thought of when I saw today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt | falling.
The sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard to find anyone who would express bright yellow with base notes, or dark lake with the treble. — Wassily Kandinsky
Constant rain and wind this week is taking its toll on the garden. This shot seems fitting then for both Friday Flowers and the Ragtag Daily Prompt | a flower cried.
