I sometimes wonder if I’m getting stuck—shapes—highlighted and placed on a black background.  I’m not finished because there are so many more seedpods and leaves that I haven’t photographed.

But does the background always have to be black? Pokeweed doesn’t work with a black background because the berries don’t show.

Another possibility is using a different plant for a background.  The shapes are not so clear but there is an almost billowing surface.  I want to dip my hand inside and see if it’s as soft as it appears.
