Common Beauty

[click image to enlarge]

There is something wonderful and magical about dandelions going to seed. The seeds on this plant are ready to take off in the next wind. Black and white seemed to work well for this beauty. Please click here for more Monochrome Monday postings.

I'll be sharing remnants of Quincy's granite industry with you this week. Enjoy your week everyone!

That works real well in b&w, especially when viewed 'large'. Well done.

There is something so mathematically elegant about a dandelion seed head. You've captured it here.

Seeds of dandelion must be MADE for b & w!

Stunning. I think I'll have to have a go at one of these in black and white!

Dandelions are one of my favorite monochrome subjects

Tanvi said...

Nice image there. I am wondering how it looks in color too, since i have imagined dandellions always in color.

Thanks for visiting. Hope to see u there more regularly...and before the next monochrome monday :)

Tk cre. keep up the good work.

Thanks for all your "dandy" visits everyone.

Laura- I heard the show and appreciate the mention of QDP. I also learned a few new things about my city . . . thanks.
