Contrasty Dandelions

Roses are red, Dandelions are yellow… unless I convert them to black and white and boost the contrast… er… whatever.

    • I’m very happy to hear both those things, S.E! That is wonderful news! I’ve been there – I’m sure it’s only a matter of time, though – I suspect you’ll have it all figured out post-haste!

  1. When I was a kid, I used to like to blow on white fluffy dandelions, scattering the seeds everywhere. Now when I get dandelions in my garden, I feel like it’s payback.

  2. It’s difficult to believe that these are considered weeds….great photo. If you run out of subject matter, we have a whole backyard full of them 😀

  3. The picture is great, and your words make it more great – or greater – or more gooder or something.
    I’m weird in many ways, one of which is because I like dandelions, even black and white ones.

  4. The dandelions are fighting back me thinks? 🙂
    I like this one a lot SIG, is there nothing that you
    cannot create into something wicked like this? 🙂

    And so excellently offered as usual my great friend 🙂

    • Just doing a little painting… (and stalling – from the painting, I guess). And cussing-out my ‘computer’. Duck, Andro (I think I’m about to kick that thing into orbit and I’m not quite sure where it will land)!
      Thank you very much, sir! I hope you are having a good one as well!

    • Aw, thanks, Deb! I was hoping you would like it!
      I guess I really don’t mind dandelions, either – of course I’m not doing much yard-work these days, though – so maybe that has something to do with it!

  5. Nice take Bob – I love Dandy Lions 🙂 Ok – I’d rather not have them in my lawn but… Heyy they have glorious flowers and the budgies enjoy eating the leaves 🙂

    That’s a very nice B&W 🙂
