Weekly Challenge #525 -Flowers in B/W

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #525 Pilgrimage

Flowers remain one of the most popular subjects for photographers, easily attested on this Forum. We love the colors, and textures, but not many of them lend themselves to B/W treatment. Let's see which ones you think are good enough to go B/W, yet retaining the eye of the beholder.

The challenge closes on Wednesday 24th February 2021.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

A few examples

The standard of images in this weeks competition is beautiful! I add my humble first shot with the Pentax 50 1.7 + Raynox 250. It's been so grey in the north west UK recently, the B&W theme seemed like an appropriate time to photograph the orchids in bloom on my bedroom window.
