Study in Silver

The little dried out brown buttterfly-like hydrangea flower heads in my garden caught my eye today. The skeleton of the veins and little capillaries reminded me of a Physallis. So tiny, so delicate.

Moved them into black and white to pull out the contrasts more and quite liked the result. Not a usual kind of composition for me, so I quite enjoyed playing with a bit and making it a kind of semi low key piece.

Looks amazing on black.
That is really lovely. In the b&w with the strong contrast, it really shows off the delicate structure. And I love your comp.
