Monochrome Mondays

Lotus Flower

4 Comments

This is the second year in a row I went with some friends to visit a local park in Sarasota that has a small pond filled with beautiful large white Lotus flowers.  Last year we met the woman who had first planted them and she told us it only took a few years for the flowers to branch out and fill the pond.  We have been experiencing a drought so the pond was very low and the flowers were fewer in numbers.  Hopefully when our rainy season starts they will come to life again.  I enjoyed the morning and thought this particular photo would look nice in B&W.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
