Monochrome Monday – Lotus in the Rain

Even if it were raining again

I would take the time to sit and take in the beauty that was in front of me

and the life all around me.

May I return and listen to you better

for there is much to learn sometimes in contemplative silence.

      Thank you. Amazing how that happens sometimes when you convert to monochrome.

    It is amazing how pretty flowers can be even when they don’t have their vibrant colors.

    Fantastic shot, Love the water on the lotus adding another dimension to the shot.

    Agree with Milford Street! I think monochrome images of flowers takes away all of the distractions and allows you to really appreciate the shape of a flower. Beautiful image Teri..

    I’ve just commented on someone else’s blog of how their photo of the water lily is just so much better in colour (as they showed the original….)… however this one I have to admit looks brilliant in B&W…

      Thanks πŸ™‚ I thought for sure I had posted it in color a long time ago but I cannot find it if I did. Maybe on a future post then.
