Black and White in the Garden

It is much more obvious to choose colour film for making photographs in the garden. It’s full of colour, but then so is the world at large. I have seen some wonderful photographs made by Paul Strand. He and his wife Hazel, brought a house in France, north west of Paris in 1955. They remained there until Paul’s death, surprisingly it wasn’t until then, that he had his own personal darkroom! I thought I’d “have a go” and see what I could come up with.

The tulips looked almost negative to me – so I inverted them in photoshop just to see what they looked like!

Of course these are not even a pale patch of Paul Stands’ work – but I like them enough to have a bit more of a “go” with black and white and plants!
