Phoneography Challenge; Black and White Coleus


I’ve always loved coleus plants. My first memories of them are from Mexico when I was a kid. The design on the leaves of this one, in black and white, reminds me of some Maya drawings I saw in Yucatan at some of the ruins.

    A lovely photo that had my imagination running after you mentioned how the leaf design reminded you of Maya drawings…this photo reminds me of Bushman drawings…. wonder if there is a link between the two..??

  7. The choice of monochrome helps to brings a simple capture into a more dramatic rendering. It becomes strong in its contrast and shading. I like the way it goes from dark to light tones. Nicely done. Happy Photo Challenge.

    The pattern on the large leaf is amazing. I also like the interplay of light and shadow at the base of the pot. Nice job! –Patti
