Common plants can often be overlooked in the quest to make interesting photographs but they really can make some of the best subjects. Take Bindweed for instance, not only common but also regarded as a pest by many and yet I wonder how many people stop to look at it in detail, taking the time to really see what this plant has to offer.
I spent half a day within a 20 metre stretch really looking at the bindweed growing there and trying to make photographs and below are some of the images I produced during that session. They may not be a gardener’s friend but they certainly gave me a lot of pleasure.
The pictures were made by finding subjects in good sunlight and with a dark shaded background.
