Black and White Challenge #2

The texture of spring.

Black and white can show how something is.  Color adds how it is, imbued with temperatures and humidities of experience.

I love, love, love color, but I also love the way black and white photography brings out details and texture such as the brittle roughness of marsh grasses and driftwood, or the silky smooth softness and suppleness of daffodil leaves.

The rules of the Black and White Challenge are simple:

  1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.
  2. Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.

My invitation today is extended to any of you who would like to jump in and join the fun.

Thank you to Woodland Gnome for inviting me to the challenge, and thank you for dropping by.  Be good, be kind, be loving.  Just Be.  🙂

  1. Black and white always seems to make everything look more artsy… perhaps because we are so used to seeing things in color… it gives us a different perspective.

    1. Thanks, Karma. 🙂 We have snow in the forecast (and there is some north and south of us), but I’m not sure we’ll see any. The blustery and wind and cold are rather shocking, though, after the warm-up we had this week.


Comments are delightful and always appreciated. I will respond when I can (life is keeping me busy!), and/or come around to visit you at your place soon. Thank you!
