I saw some clever Halloween decorations but these were my favorites.
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.
I have taken this shot a zillion times. It is particularly beautiful at night. I need to get out and get some night shots before it gets too cold.
