Fons, I like specially the second one. I think the monochromatic choice makes more evident and enjoyable the play with repetition, spatial arrangement and fade-out bokeh

Beautiful work with that 28mm, Fons.  I wish not to acquire any more F mount lenses, but that one is the biggest temptation.

No idea of the name, but the shape of the flowers and the way it grows the leaves are definitely weird.

Very unusual, but quite pretty.
