For me, looking through the viewfinder is looking into a magical world. In a world without color, in a world dominated by light, shadow and gray tones. Into the magical world of black and white photography. Black and white photography focuses on the essentials. It highlights the beauty of the subject. It stimulates the viewer's imagination. A black and white photograph sometimes expresses more than 1000 words can describe.
At the end of the day, when the sun goes down, the flowers slowly close and we ask ourselves what the day was like, only one thing should be important: Was it a day when we could make someone happy? Was it a day we could make someone laugh? It is not always money that makes us happy, it is small gestures that are sometimes insignificant to us and that can mean so much. A smile can change the world.
I believe this flower is very special, because it was the only one of its kind, plus it was at a garden where I used to live as a child. Took this photo on a small trip I made to a Paradise called Puerto Rico. I like how the long part of the flower which is called the pistil is touching right on the edge line of the photograph.
