A field full of flowers- my entry for the #Monomad challenge

Well hello there to all of you colourful and creative people in the #blackandwhite community here for the magnificent #monomads challenge so kindly created by @monochromes!

This is my entry for the latest #monomads challenge and I thought that I'd experiment with some flowers and take the fun out of them to see what happens in B&W.

These images were taken (by me ofcourse) at #Floriade Tulip Festival in Canberra just over 3 years ago.

I hope that you enjoy them and don't have as many mixed feeling about taking the colour- the life- the joy and the pure beauty out of them as I do.

And in saying that, just imagine if this was the world that we lived in. And in many respects, unfortunately it is.

Sort:  

Black and white does give quite the perspective. Sometimes, it can be very interesting, like in your first picture. I have to agree with you that I like the color better. People in black and white photography are interesting as it often takes about ten years off of how old they look. I could use some of that, lol! Take care and thanks for sharing!💜

Yeah I think that portraits and some landscapes look great in B&W and maybe some very detailed flower petals or leaves, but not so much in flowers in general I don't think...Oh well it was a good experiment...🤣🤔

It was! Black and white TV's used to be all the rage (waaaaay back, lol). I remember them. Take care @chocolatescorpi!

YEah lolll- B&W tvs used to be all the rage back then cause there was no other choice!

Going through mum's old recipe books from the 70 and 80s today mostly B&W in the 70s and colour in the 80's and what a difference that makes!

Indeed! Now, just look at what we can do with editing! Who would have thought?!

Take care!

Yeah so true!
I LOVE the digital world and have only gotten into it the past 15 years though.

I find it fun, challenging at times, and frustrating too. What an oxymoron, lol! Take care!💜

Yeah- all of the above too! You take care too hon!
