Monochrome Weekend / White Roses on Lido Isle, Newport Beach, California USA

I posted these roses in color for the Today's Flowers meme and then decided to convert them to black and white, and post them again, for Monochrome Weekend.
I found these white roses, yesterday, on Lido Isle in Newport Beach, California.

LoL! I thought they looked familiar! They're so beautiful either way - be it in black-and-white or color.

Thank you for sharing!

Beautiful! And I wonder, can you have such a beatiful flower on the beach..lucky you:-)

Another exception to my "flowers only in colour" rule. There's something special about a white rose, particularly when it's so well lit and framed - and set against a black background! Very attractive.

These are great in monochrome. Like beautiful ruffles.

Oh those are beautiful! The mono effect really came out well. Such lovely contrasts with the dark and light. Thanks for stopping by at mine!

The macro flowers that you photographed are very beautiful. I went to shoot roses in Minamata City Flower Garden yesterday. I will post some of them soon.
