Yes, I think I will keep doing Monochrome Madness and today I have a still lily for you. I took it the other day while I still had the macro lens from Fujifilm.
Is it just me, but I always think of Robert Mapplethorpe when I do images like this. His are better, but I do love to try.
A still lily
One of the things I’ve been doing a lot is setting everything up to photograph food and I realised that I wasn’t really doing that with flowers. I needed to try the FUJINON XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro from Fujifilm Australia with more than food.
On Monday I got everything out, including my Winston, my 3 Legged Thing tripod and spent some time exploring lilies.
This is one of the few that I took that was just the whole one. It had been raining so I was hoping to get some waterdrops. I did on some others, but not really on this.
It was good to try the lens, but it is gone now, but I have some other images to play with as well.
Here is my lily.
It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you enjoy the monochrome images. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook group, TPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.
