2012, Day 125 - Bells

Macro photography is all about taking joy and finding beauty in the details.  A couple days ago I went out to breakfast with some friends.  They had picked me up and after eating I opted to walk home.  It was a very pleasant morning, warm thanks to a little humidity despite the cloud cover.  These walks are when you have the greatest opportunity to make a discovery like this lily of the valley.  Their delicate beauty belies their toxicity but it is its simplicity that makes it such a beautiful plant.  I think that is why I decided to process it in black and white, color isn't necessary, the form alone is pretty.
