The Arboretum in Black and White

April 21, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

A spring trip to the arboretum is awash in color and depth, yet I found such strong pattern and texture that I was compelled to process some of the images in black and white.

I hope to post color ones later, since that was the purpose of the visit, but enjoy a few monochromatic images of the flowers and architecture of the United States National Arboretum.

The Frilled Edges of Azalea Blossoms An Unusual Variety of Dogwood TesselatedReflections in the Koi Pond Plane GeometryEscher-like reflections that hint of the elaborate decorations of The Alhambra. (Just a little) Ferns, Sedum and RootsDon't forget to look down while you are wandering in the gardens.
