    Wow, the choice of b & w was brilliant! Oh the light and lines are so fabulous in this macro!

  • Thank you, Joanne. As you pointed out, this one really is all about lines and light, which made it a good choice for b&w conversion for one of the challenges here. I will post the color version a little later.
