Monochrome Madness ~ Week 9

It’s been an inside week with weather and work, so my entry for this week’s MMC reflects this with a ‘made up’ shot.

Continuing on with my shell theme… I wanted to take a look in B&W.  I love the details and the different textures..

Many thanks again to Leanne and Laura for challenging us with Monochrome Madness every week.  It’s another great week of images!

Echinacea…

Yesterday, a blogging friend and I met for lunch.  We’d commented and emailed back and forth for quite some time now (years), but we hadn’t met…yet…until yesterday 🙂  We had a lovely quiet chatty lunch and afterwards we wandered a little and found a lovely little garden nursery.  We both made a little purchase for our family gardens 🙂

I purchased a couple of Echinacea ( Cone flower) plants.

I admit to buying the plant to photograph, as well as to plant in my garden 😉  I think the flowers on these plants are amazing!  Photographing it in a pleasing way was tricky though.  Once I got a good look at the plant up close, there was a lot more information, plus imperfections in the plant… which I still think it is amazing!  First time I’ve looked that closely at this flower.  So, here is my effort 😀

Thanks for a great day D.  It was lovely to meet you!!

Monochrome Madness Challenge

Good morning 😀

Today I’m taking part in Leanne and Laura’s B&W ‘Monochrome Madness‘ Challenge!  I truly love B&W images and I know this challenge is going to do exactly that… challenge me to do better and to find images that fit the brief.

This image, ‘Tiny Umbrellas’ is my entry today.. another dandelion 😀 I find them fascinating and each one is uniquely different!
