2012, Day 41 - Teeth

One of the things I have always appreciated about black and white photography is that it is all about the forms and the interplay of light and dark.  You can't hide poor composition behind pretty colors, all is laid bare.  This subject, the new growth of euphorbia, makes a good black and white because of the concentric rings of leaves.  Their repetition is pleasing and the contrast is a little on the low side which means that it has a pleasant soft quality.  This weekend challenge yourself, try to see the world in only light and shadow and take some pictures.
