Monochrome Garden

MoBot 2105-04-05 6

Gardens are not just about color. We also appreciate shape, light and texture. These photos are from last weekend's visit to the Missouri Botanical Garden.

Making a run down to Memphis this morning, a four hour drive. Mrs. C has an annual professional conference there. I joined her for a couple of nights last year - you may have seen my pictures from Graceland. This time it's down today and back home with her tomorrow. If I get there early enough I'll visit the Civil Rights Museum and photograph the daily duck parade at the famous old Peabody Hotel where we're staying. While Carolyn is at a Saturday evening program I'll attend the Memphis Redbirds baseball game. They are the Cardinals' AAA minor league affiliate, playing in a little gem of a stadium, just 10,000 seats and a block from the hotel. I went crazy and bought the most expensive ticket in the place - $21. It's three figures in St. Louis.

I like black and white and it works well with these garden shots. I especially like the white flowers. They look even more delicate in monochrome.

Even in b/w it looks warm. Up here the first two games of the Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox AA team) have been snowed out/rained out. With southern climate teams in AA, why do they schedule games up here in early April? They do it every year.

Works well in monochrome. I'm surprised I like them so much.

I do hope you get some shots of the duck parade. I've heard so much about it and would love to see it.

A great way to highlight aspects other than colour in a garden

The second shot works particularly well!
