One can see why artists through the years have been (and continue to be) so enthralled by the datura (aka Angel Trumpet).
It’s so obviously and blatantly sensual. And if I had processed these images “normally” as opposed to daguerreotype, you’d see how starkly white the blooms appear against the green leafy background.
But where’s the fun in color, when such a powerful effect can be derived from b&w interpretations?
Add a morning spring shower, just enough to give a dewey effect to the smooth white surface, and you’ve got something work shooting, over and over again until you come up with something wonderful.
