Nature

I guess black and white nature photography is easy if you are not careful. Hitting the proverbial cliche image is very easy as I guess this is the first style us amateurs explore, other than snapping away photographing our family.  I might have a wide range of black and white images, I am careful not to overindulge in everything I walk past. In most cases, nature comes to me in the small details or alternative angles that bring a new perspective. Emotion plays a big role as in the two burnt Aloe plants the sadness of natural  gruesome death of kelp on the beach. I guess the extreme wide-angle view taken so close overstates the point I tried to make about the kelp.  I have to admit that some nature images border on the abstract, so you might find some under that heading too (but I try and remain focussed).
