Black and white ghostly looking flowers

“I think it’s because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Colour is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.” ― Kim Hunter

I think this quote goes perfectly with this image. In colour it is looks soft and gentle but like this all that is gone and it looks ghostly and haunting. I have a bit of a thing for ghostly, spooky, sinister images and as a general rule black and white tends to help create that kind of narrative. The fact it work on flowers, which in reality are rarely eerie, really delights me.
