A week or so ago I had the pleasure of visiting friends in the Chicago area.  Since he is also a photographer, we had great fun together for several days.  One of the places we visited was the Chicago Botanic Garden.  It contained a display called "Blossoms and Butterflies". The display was outdoors and the sun shone brightly.  Here is one image which I chose to use in my "Creative Photography" class this semester:

This image works pretty well by itself as a B & W image.  I have done two versions of it as a hand colored print; one colored realistically and one colored psychedelic.  I used water cooler pencils followed by a fine brush of water.

But I wanted to go farther.  So I tried inverting the black and white image and really liked what turned out:
