It is that time of the year and a lotus flower seemed like a good idea for Monochrome Madness this week. They are so beautiful and in monochrome also good.
The Blue Lotus Water Gardens are open again and once again I went to visit. It has become a yearly thing, and this is the third year I’ve been.
It seems to get bigger every year. This year there were definitely new areas that we hadn’t seen before. It is a great place to take photos, though it was so sunny when we were there that taking photos was really hard. I didn’t take as many as I usually do, but if I get a chance to go back on a day when it is overcast, I will be going back.
This is from one of the indoor displays. Well inside a white tent sort of thing. Really hot inside them and very humid. The flowers in them were beautiful and the structure they were in gave a wonderful diffused light.
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.
