  1. A very good idea with the pearls, the b/w really does them credit. Love the patterns of the leaves with their constrasts and the lace curtain is an ideal motive.

    1. Thank you, Pat, I really agonized over the composition of that pearl picture and finally replaced it with a tighter crop. Glad you like the leaves and the curtain.

  3. Hi Benni !! Great shots for this week's theme. I love that first one, the peals make a perfect subject for B&W and the lighting is just right. Lovely shot of the leaves. I like your perspective in the last shot, a glimpse through the curtains, but then the netting behind them creative another layer.

    1. Thanks, Mitch. It was a very cloudy day with just a few moments when the sun peeked out. I may play more with the pearls again on a sunnier day.
