Day 44: Black and White Flowers/Heather

As I mentioned on black and white day, I discovered I don't have a black and white setting on my camera. And black flowers aren't that common in nature-at least not where I live. So, I had to be creative. I thought about dying carnations and even went as far as to look up how to do that.

Another idea came to mind and yesterday at lunch, I ran over to Michael's to see if they had any black silk flowers. The selection wasn't great but I did manage to put together a bouquet of various black and white flowers. After taking several shots inside, I decided it would be fun to take some outside as well to make it look a little more real. This isn't my favorite shot, but I like it.

  1. Hmmm...I still think it's odd that there's not b&w mode on your camera. But, I love this shot; and because they are outside, they actually look like they could be growing there. :)
