photoblog image Blackened Butternut

Blackened Butternut

Leaves from a butternut tree. The strong sheen on the leaves shows the tenderness of the new leaves.

 

I like how when I visit Youtube it has suggestions of songs I've searched out in the past.  Recently this one by Amos Lee was waiting and I have been singing it along in my head ever since.

Je ne suis pas fan du n&b mais je trouve que cette photo est réussie. Je ne peut pas mettre le son sur mon ordinateur, cela fait aboyer mes chiens...
Mary MacADNski: I put the b/w on Monday as it is a bit of a theme here.

They are nice & shiny
Mary MacADNski: So thin and tender.
Delightfully converted to B&W, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It is fun to try different shots. Most don't end up that great but some do.
I ha e not seen these leaves before Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Perhaps they are not on your island or conntinent. I know nothing about them except what they are.

You can see every detail, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It converted very well. This is certainly not always the case.

I only know the butternut as a squash, growing on the ground. I googled this plant - will keep a lookout when I am in nut shops. Great in b&w.
Mary MacADNski: It is a large nut tree, not at all a garden plant.

I like the trust textures here; B&W has worked well.
Mary MacADNski: It converted very well. This is certainly not always the case.

The silvery light on the leaves is soft like butter - sadly, I cannot listen to the song.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you, Philine.
Works well in B&W Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It converted very well. This is certainly not always the case.
