Weed We Say


This is a picture of a plant we see cluttering up our lawns, we complain, we pluck them out, and kill them with chemicals. Are they really that bad? They add colour to an otherwise boring green grass cover, and cause no physical harm. I enjoy dandelions, and they're also fun to rub on peoples faces. Don't get rid of them, they're not an invasive species. However, you are, and you cause more damage to the planet on the whole.

I like the mystery with the BW. I love the macro :)

I think you should have the ability to create your own idea of what it should look like. That's the fun in Black and White - it gives the viewer their own opportunity to recreate the scene for themselves. Why else would people still use B+W film when colour film has been around in various forms for 140 years? ... ponder ...

this is nice, but i vote for colour also... black and white does do what you say, but i think here it just sort of puts a negative emphasis on the symbol of a flower, especially with the inspiring words written below. it just doesnt seem to fit...

The only reason why black and white film is still around is because people don't know how to white balance their film to their light.

Haha right.

Something interesting- I worked at the Dandelion Festival last weekend. Lots of fun people celebrating these little yellow flowers and organic living.
