Daffodil – B&W

I converted this yellow daffodil in a recent post to black and white for Monochrome Madness March 31, 2016. I wanted it to have a slight sepia tone and look like an old etching, so I chose a flower with a plain background, intricate shapes, detail and texture.

Chinatown Frog Pot

I originally made this photo in color on September 2011 at Mulberry Street, Chinatown, New York City and converted it to B&W for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness on March 30, 2016.
