Behold the majestic arch of flowers with life in it.

Photographer's Statement:

This photo depicts an arch of flowers with a person walking in the background.  I simplified it down to black and white to not distract the viewer form the important elements which was the arch and the life that was in it, the person in the background.  This photo was taken in a green house so there was a lot of light in it which helped make the flowers pop.
