POTD: Strawberries and Lupine

POTD: Strawberries and LupineStrawberries and Lupine Bozeman, Montana 2014

I know some of you are probably wondering why I switched from color to monochrome for some of these recent flower photos. Good question; I wish I had a definitive answer for you.

Another interesting question is why, whenever I post bright colored flower photos, they probably get more comments than any other subject matter I cover in monochrome or color. As a fine art photographer, to get more comments on what I see as “fluff” than on substance that is a little bit frustrating. (Not terribly frustrated though as all attention is appreciated!)

Everyone, me included, can’t help but appreciate a brightly colored flower I guess. But I tend to get tired of the eye candy fairly quickly. I guess that’s one reason I switched to the monochrome presentations.
