From the desert in North Yemen

Endemic to the desert in North Yemen is the Euphorbia achmat but it grows very prosperous in our garden here in South Africa. This is a natural variegated specie with one of the 4 lobes on one side green and the leafs are half green and half yellowish. The non-variegated original specie is yellowish with pale green stripes.

In Black & White the image looks better than in full color.

Minimal colors; an experiment

I like both: black & White and color pictures. There are many grades in each of both and I just experimented with grades between both.

To be honest: I don’t like it but you may think different.

A few examples. The full color ones as shot with my camera and the minimal color images by moving the ‘saturation’ slide in Photoshop to the left.
