I always enjoy seeing several photos of the same subject, but at different times with different cameras/lenses and different films. It helps me see the subject more deeply.
These are great. Flowers in B&W sometimes are better than in color.
One of my photo heroes is Karl Blossfeldt who worked only in black and white to make close-up images of plant structures using a home-made camera. He was a designer, illustrator and teacher more than a photographer. He seems to have intended his images to serve primarily as teaching aids and as kind of a clip-art collection for artists and craftsmen interested in the use of natural forms. Blossfeldt's compositions look simple, but they are very hard to reproduce, even with the advantage of his examples and modern equipment.
