You Capture - Black and White

Beth's You Capture subject today is Black and White. I love the subject but most of all I think I'm going to love You Capture on Monday more than anything!

I found two types of Black and White to post. One was the Black and White that I created. The hard part was choosing which ones were the best. I enlisted help from Mr. Right but realized that his favorite Black and Whites were the one that looked really old. You know like the old Black and White photos - oh but most of you don't remember those. I clearly recall when that was all you could get. lol Evidently he does too. So here some of his favorites.

And here are a few of mine.

This cross is in Effingham, IL. To get a sense of the size of it, here is a shot with the electrical poles in the foreground.

Then I explored the Black and White as in things that just are Black and White - like this junco - on foot and in flight.

And then there's the combo Black and White.

That's it for this week. Now I'm off to find something Fun to capture. I already can't wait for next week. To join in, go to Beth's I Should Be Folding Laundry and post your favorite Black and Whites.


  1. Love that junco. Spring, oh, spring!

  2. Beautiful work!!! I love old buildings and there's just something about them being converted to b&w. The cross is amazing...

  3. What a great collection of black and white shots. I love the buildings as well -- particulary the 3rd one down.

  4. I love old barns! The daffodil shot really convinced me that spring is pushing its way through! Lovely shots!

  5. wow! I can't believe how many awesome shots you got! I love the old barn and the bird A LOT!!!! Nice job!

  6. Great shots! The barns are my favorites as well. I was also thinking of the more literal black & white this week... :)

  7. Wow, such a variety this week! I love the one with the bird taking flight. I have to agree with Mr. Right, though, I like the "old looking" shots with the barns the best.


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
