So, here’s the second day of the photo challenge that Marilyn Armstrong over at Serendipity tagged me in. Since I’m not really a photographer, I’m kinda winging it here. I flipped through my old snapshots until I found one that I thought would look good in Black and White and played with the filters a bit until I figured it looked okay. So here ya go:
Now this is a black butterfly on an orange flower, and the original picture has a riot of color going on. But I figured the contrast was enough to pull off putting it in black and white. I also cropped it a bit so the butterfly would be the focus of the picture instead of lost in the leaves. If I were going to post it in color, I’da cropped it the same way I think.
Anyway, I took this particular picture when my knitting club in New Mexico went to the Botanic Gardens in Albuquerque where they have a butterfly pavilion. It was way peaceful, and there were butterflies everywhere! I nearly filled my memory card with pictures there were so many of them. This one, I thought, this one would look great in black and white. And I think I was right. Hope you agree.
Here’s the original:
