Flower closeup by Steve Bruno at gottatakemorepix

Sometimes I don’t travel very far to take photographs.  That would be the case for this close-up of flowers in a friends’ backyard.  I like this one in color, and when I converted it to b&w, I left a hint of the flower saturation in.  This is my contribution to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness for this week’s theme of Close-up.  More monochrome images from other bloggers can be viewed on her site.
