“There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit.” – Alexander Pope
Joyful Majesty In Black and White
I had to post both images because…
I loved the cheerfulness of the yellow and the feeling of joy it brought me, especially in the warm glow of the sun. The black and white, however, moved me as well and I loved the contrast.

Tonight begins a journey with the Lily. Historically, the Lily has represented majesty. In some parts of history it can be found that Lilies of various colors represent something other than, or in addition to, majesty. For example, the white Lily, as I posted last week, represents purity and virtue. Throughout the 2013 Lily series you will see Lilies of varying color as well as black and white images of Lilies. The Lily itself is a magnificent flower. It can be a challenge to photograph, but if you have wonderful natural light, those challenges seem to fade to artistic creation. I hope you enjoy the series and look forward to your comments and feedback.
