Love the lighting and texture on the first 2 and the dreamy quality of the 3rd. I love the 2 header images.

I love the black and white and the texture of the bricks.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Yes it is the texture and the light that is so captivating. And I too find the new header beautiful. You have such a talent for "putting things together"

I love B&W, but don't do them that often. You always do such a great job with them. I love your last post too.

Jewels said...

Kris said...

really nicely done!

Liss said...

I like the awing in the first photo and is that a new blog header I syp?

Love, love, love this latest header incarnation - that leaf with the blue is pretty wonderful. And your black & white is ditto wonderful, reminding me of a "church" in Gladewater I photographed a bit ago. Perhaps I'll post those pictures today. They very much fit your theme today. As always, few words, but you make it work. A gift.

I'm loving the sky in the header...it's red..or gray! :)

Kimmie said...

amazing use of focus .... soft focus on man made materials and their hard edges. Hard focus on God's sticks bent ever so perfectly into a perfect arch

Megan Coyle said...

I like the detail you've captured with these black&white pictures--it's amazing what black and white can do to a composition. These look very tranquil and peaceful--very nice :)

Claire said...

your header is my favourite yet.

the second photo has a very specific mood. it takes me back to a market in madagascar where i bought a kilogram of vanilla pods and a basket of litchis.

Oliag said...

I love your new header too...especially the sky..gorgeous..someday I will have to find out from you how you make these headers:)

Your B&W photography is consistently good....love the wreath against the bricks especially
