colors, shades & tones



I thought it'd be better to composite the day's flower shots into one, so as not to overwhelm anyone. Instead, I overwhelmed myself with color and wondered what it would look like in b/w. Not sure which one I prefer.

Don't bother asking me what all of these are. I could maybe name five. The bottom image, second column looks to me like queen anne's lace but in purplish-red. I didn't even know that Mother Nature had made this an option. I love the red, weepy thing on the top of column three.

Wow -- that's alot of blooming going on! Maybe the QAL lookalike is wild parsnip? Not sure. Lovely series. :)

I prefer the colorful one because it really shows of the beauty of summer!

I like the black and white...3rd column, second row. Beautiful work!! Hope you had a great weekend, lady!

LOL ...I'm with you ... wouldn't know their names but doesn't keep me from enjoying their beauty!

Both are lovely, but I think that part of what makes a flower special is it's color, so for that reason, I choose the color shots.
