Oh I have more pictures but this is enough for one week. I do enjoy photographing these flowers because the are large and colorful but also fairly simple.
Flowers are not the first subject that comes to mind when I think about black and white photography but they can make excellent subjects. Black and white pictures are all about light and contrast.
They like to bloom in the fall and I like to photograph them. Cosmos are very easy to grow and they usually survive a light frost or two before they give up.
They are so much fun to photograph. I think I have 100 butterfly close ups.
I haven’t seen as many monarchs this year but the Zinnias are doing just fine. They were a favorite of my grandfather’s and I understand why. They are easy to grow and come in bright colors and they attract butterflies.
Sunflowers look lovely in the sun.
