White … is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black … God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.
— G. K. Chesterton
A beautiful calla lily unfurling in morning light. I used a large aperture to render the background softly and conversion to black and white to emphasize the delicious curves of the opening flower. No crop – framing done in the camera. (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/3.5, 1/5000 sec., ISO 200, morning sun, handheld)
