Hasta Droop

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 6 August 2012 in Plant & Nature.

A Hasta plant in my tiny garden has nothing but wilted blossoms which are falling from the stems. I like this shot for the shell of the blossom with the wilted flower drooping down. The single stem and white background left the image very simple which I also liked. I hope you like it too. A black and white version is here.

This is different....I like the simpleness of it. Did you try it in B&W? I bet it would be even more wonderful.

The full leaf and cropped bloom as well as the focus differences against the white background make an interesting image.

I have to say Don that I prefer the B&W version, as it has a classic elegance.
