06.20.2022 Monochromatic Macro Monday-Tendril

Walking at the Brickyard Conservation Area this morning, I saw a lot of subjects for abstract or intimate images. I certainly didn’t set out with this visualized on my way there and it was the last image I made before coming home.  Some of the others will appear as the week wears on.

Obviously this composition was entirely green with the curlicue tendril almost white. But I felt that the detail and shape would be better viewed in black and white.

  1. A tendril poking through a hole in a leaf must be a rare thing, one I don’t remember ever seeing before.

    Quite an unusual find. Even color-loving me thinks the black and white treatment works well.

    Great choice. Black and white really helps it stand out and accentuates the texture of the leaf.
