Wonderful choice to use B&W; that's somewhat unusual in blog land I think and really stands out.

I love B&W photography. So many times you see things more clearly when the color isn't there.

Isn't it fun to go black and white for a change? It just somehow makes things look more classic, more mysterious, more weighty. Funny how our brain reacts to things.
