So much beauty in the "ordinary" things of life....still looking and listening.

The dark background here and in yesterday's grevillea photos is a piece of black cardboard. I held it behind the flowers in the garden and took my photos using my other hand. They were taken late afternoon in the shade.

With the black background we see the flower just as it is with all its details, and the flower is wonderful. A flower in natural surroundings is just another expression.
