Macro Monday #17

(click to enlarge to full size)


I posted a black and white version of this flower a few weeks ago and thought maybe you’d like to see the original in colour.

  2. This really is sinister.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Less sinister than the B&W version?

      1. More sinister – the black and the red.

      Somebody ‘pointing the finger’? 🙂

  3. Sue Slaght says:

    Love the color version Jude. Are you feeling settled in to your new home?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Sue and yes, it is beginning to feel like home – have you seen the new Cornish blog?

  4. Lucid Gypsy says:

    I like it but actually prefer the black and white version!

  5. Fab! I love how it looms out of the darkness.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It certainly looms!

    Now is Macro Monday part of your inspirations because I can’t see a link to another blog? You’re confusing my tiny brain. As if it’s not enough to get snowed on on April 26th!!! 🙂 🙂

      I think I just started posting macros on a Monday so the name stuck. There is a flickr group with the same name where they select a theme for the week, but I haven’t had time to join in yet! Did you get a photo of the snow? It is beautiful here, a cold wind and ‘fresh’ but quite lovely.

        After I commented I thought that it was probably a carry over from 60MM, and the answer is that I might have done. 🙂 🙂 We’ve had snow sun rain snow sun rain snow…you get the picture… all day but I’ve been cooking then cleaning at Dad’s so … 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          Oh, you clever thing – yes you are right and I have abandoned 60MM on your advice 🙂 We have had sun and wind all day 😀 I hope you are resting tomorrow!

          T’ai chi, more cooking, trip to the library, mammogram, no time for hair cut- will have to chance a Polish one :)- at least 1 more blog post to write and I really will have to pack as I leave home at 3.30 Thursday morning. Restful…. 🙂

        3. Heyjude says:

          Oh, Jo. Where do you get all your energy from? No wonder you called your blog restless…

        4. restlessjo says:

          And I forgot last minute shopping and replying to Meg’s lovely emails. 🙂 I’ll be pacing up and down in Poland. Just a bit too much ‘family’ and not enough restless. 🙂 Will definitely see you in Edinburgh! Is Friday/Saturday better? I’ll check Grand Central when I’m back cos it’s a smashing rail link.

        5. Heyjude says:

          Well I hope you manage to escape for some time on your own – much as I like spending time with family I always want a little ME time to explore. Not everyone appreciates my photo walks. Friday might be better – I just think weekends are always more crowded. But whatever suits you – I’ll have definite confirmation of events in June so don’t go booking anything just yet 🙂

        6. restlessjo says:

          I won’t! I just wasn’t sure what time you’d be arriving. 🙂 I’ll probably be ‘at loose’ in Krakow on Friday.

        7. Heyjude says:

          We will arrive on the Thursday, probably by train from Doncaster. Have fun in Krakow 🙂

        8. restlessjo says:

          A roundabout route! I assumed you’d fly 🙂 🙂 Thank you! Nervous and seriously busy today.

  7. A very interesting version, Jude. Think I’m with Gilly. 🙂

  8. pommepal says:

    Like it, but think it is more dramatic in black and white

    1. Heyjude says:

      Me too. One reason I posted it was to demonstrate how black and white conversions can enhance an image and change the way you look at it.

  9. This is such a fabulous photo!!

      Thank you – and the b&w version?
