Sometimes I don’t travel very far to take photographs. That would be the case for this close-up of flowers in a friends’ backyard. I like this one in color, and when I converted it to b&w, I left a hint of the flower saturation in. This is my contribution to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness for this week’s theme of Close-up. More monochrome images from other bloggers can be viewed on her site.
