Wrapping up the fall pictures from Christianshavn, I decided to do all of them in black and white. Pick your favorite, color or not…

Every once in a while I try black/white. I don’t know… I like the muted colors. I feel I’m missing a dimension here.
Another faded flower… I find the contrast of city vs. nature interesting. It seems to give more of an edge than pictures taken in the wild.
Are the muted colours and the subtle details not at least as beautiful as the flowers in bloom?
Roses turn to seeds turn to roses turn to… Each phase has its own unique beauty.
Getting caught up in documenting the traces of fall I realized something. I like less-than-perfect much better perfect. Just like a perfect singing voice can be infinately boring. Decay in any form brings out a much more interesting personality than pure beauty.
Camera in hand and the sun hidden behind clouds I revisited the places on Christianshavn I had shot in August.
