Succulent still life...

My mind thinks in terms of categories.  In still life photos I typically use things that would go together in real life. I decided to stretch myself this week and use random objects, selecting one of my succulent plants as the star of the show.

These last two shots are my favorite. I'm not normally a lover of black and white photos, but the last shot in black and white won me over.

  8. I love the B&W, too! Simple subjects look great that way. (I love that succulent. Mine are outdoor types and pretty "standard.")
