Why Black and White

Recently, on Facebook, I posted a photograph of an orchid.  I was asked why I made the colorful photograph black and white.  Truth is, I was curious.  I was curious how much beauty would be retained if you pulled away the color.  I was curious how the textures would be represented without the red, yellow and pink hue’s.

After spending some more time with the question I found interest in seeing color differently – looking past it – looking through it.  I was challenged to look at the structure of my subject…the essence. Here are some images that I hope you enjoy.
