After today’s pathetic attempt at a solar eclipse here in London (I think the grey got darker at one point) I’m looking forward to some warmth and some colour. But despite all that colour, I sometimes think my better “yet another boring flower shots” are often black and white. For those interested in such things, this was taken with a Pentax K-5 plus the rather maligned SMC DA 18-135 lens – a lens which I always felt performed better than its reputation. Personally, I think it is a stronger image in black and white – there was too much colour in the bright yellow original (which I have helpfully failed to share!) which completely overwhelmed the whole picture.
As well as looking forward to the Spring I’m also looking forward to the weekend – I’m planning to take out my digital dinosaur for some fun – more on that soon….
