    There are times when it's necessary to strip the color away to get to the real story and the real story in this photo is Drama. The drama of the heavy, wet blooms fighting for their position in the tightly-sown garden; the drama of the moody lighting - just after a rain shower; the drama of the fading life of the heavy petals as they struggle under their own weight and the weight of the raindrops that makes them droop even further.
