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!

Hi Jim, Many thanks indeed – although I suspect it was more down to the Nikon than me! Andy
