photoblog image Bruised Lilacs

Bruised Lilacs

This is done in greyscale rather than black and white, which did not work at all.

The lilacs are in a basket as they have no stems.

We had terrific winds for a couple of days during lilac season and they blew the lilacs right off the stems.

When I later picked the lilacs off the lawn the grass looked like it was covered in snow.

Both pic's are very nice Mary , as is the music.
Care MacADNski: Thanks, Frank. The music and flowers seemed to go together well.

Both are lovely...but I like the colour best.
Care MacADNski: Seems to be the popular choice.
Il me semble sentir le parfum du lilas.
Care MacADNski: The season is so short....

The colour image works for me
Care MacADNski: When the basket was first made in 1999 it was as green as the green in the lilacs.

Too bad of the storm, Mary. I have a slight preference of the coloured version for because of the soft tones.
Care MacADNski: Just realized the memory of the basket when made 20 years ago. It was green.
In this case,Mary, I also like the color version best. I LOVE lilacs!
Care MacADNski: I too love lilacs. I have white, my son a hedge of purple.
Must have been quite a wind. Makes for a lovely picture though. B&W works well for me here
Care MacADNski: It certainly was a windy few days. The b/w is greyscale monotone without drama of b/w.

The black and white helps brighten this.
Care MacADNski: The darkness is the reason a straight b/w conversion did not work. The grey mono which I often think of as monotonous. I like taking flower shits in extreme lights, usually quite dark.
I love the focus on the lilacs in the greyscale: they are so bright.......lovely photo's Mary smile
Care MacADNski: Thank you, Martin. I usually do Black and white for Monday but the greyscale worked much better.
I really like both versions of this Mary, the colour one is the sort of picture that maureen likes to use when she is making gift cards.
Care MacADNski: Flowers are great for cards.

Calling a white flower a lilac. It must be the English that did that. The greyscale is a great still live.
Care MacADNski: Perhaps the colour came from the plant. It is white but certainly a lilac.

Colour version for me today. I can almost smell their scent! Lovely!
Care MacADNski: Don't the white ones smell great!
Well, it certainly works.
Care MacADNski: It worked well instead of a bouquet.
i agree that the grey scale isn't as good as the coloured one Mary... we have no lilacs blooming here quite yet but it won't be long... i can almost smell your blossoms....petersmile
Care MacADNski: This must be your latest summer ever, peter, as you usually catch up quickly.

Care MacADNski: I didn't know what else to do with the wind strewn lilacs.
