You Capture - Black & White

Beth's You Capture this week is Black & White so it became a matter of trying to find which of my photos would look good in black and white. My first thought was that it would be a disservice to my flower photos to show them without their lovely colors; but when I tried it, I kind of liked it:


Then there was the cell phone tower set against all the clouds.

And Jack saying, "Look, I'll prove it. It's right here in black and white"!

And the crazy cat with his crazy tongue and big, big eyes:

And the two sweet, old-fashioned girls walking hand-in-hand down the old-fashioned street in the old-fashioned town:

That's all I have for today. You capture truly caught me by surprise. What a week it's been!

For more black and white visit Beth at Ishouldbefoldinglaundry and don't be afraid to add your own black and white photos!

  5. I like the cell tower as well. Have you tried cropping it in more tightly to the tower itself?

  6. Who knew a cell tower could look so cool? And the lilies and the family shot are great too! :)

  8. I like the first crop where you show a bit of the trees, but it looks like you might've brightened the 2nd one a bit more. That gives the clouds a bit more drama and I like that.

  11. The absence of color really brings out the textures and details of the flowers. Great choice!
