In the midst of the burgeoning of spring life, it’s difficult to remember the sere life of fall and winter.  This life has its own beauty, however, a beauty easily translated into black and white from the earth tones that are all that is left.  Here and there are found dried stalks, standing alone, refusing to go quietly into that white winter.


Such days of autumnal decline hold a strange mystery which adds to the gravity of all our moods.
  ~Charles Nodier, Smarra: & Trilby

    Interesting take on the theme!

    Marvelous photo for this week’s alone theme. Thanks for playing Janet 🙂 🙂

  3. Striking. Love that wispy white supporting that solidly textured pod. Nice light/dark contrast

    • Thanks! There such beauty even in the dead plants. But I have to admit I’m reveling in the abundance of spring. Winter makes me appreciate spring even more.

    Janet – I agree – the dead and dried plants do have a beauty 🙂 and your B & W has a certain mood that is thought provoking…

  5. Great photo. Love the abandoned feel to this
