Breaking free

A Ricinus seedling after emerging from the Castor Oil bean. Even the seed leaves are highly textured signalling what lies ahead for this handsome foliage plant. It’s rugged nature is what I tried to capture here as its breaking free from the papery seedcase which still clings to the first leaves. However, I could not decide between hard or soft monochrome so tried both with the Ricoh GRiii image control monochrome selections!

  1. Well your honesty is appreciated. There are reasons for liking each given here, however no real test of the process since angle & light vary for each (not really the point I’d suppose). Glad you thought to look, this moment of a leaf. Think I’m coming more to appreciate change in all its faces.

feedback is food for thought....
