black and white

My creation


encourages me
to look closer . to see differently . to shake my head . to be ever searching . to click with joy . to focus on the outward .
to be less critical . to be

each day photos appear HERE ... a little part of life

I love your photos in this collage--I remember seeing them alone, and now together. Beautiful!

I really like this series of
B&Ws that you've been doing
ELK.

I love your mosaic. Also, your banner image is wonderful. It looks like two trees holding hands!

Char said...

love how you put this together

Marcie said...

It always amazes me how - once we remove the color - the image transforms itself into line..shape..form. Excellent mosaic!!!

I love love love the stems in the water.

Billy Coffey said...

I'll echo joyce. The stems in the water is a fantastic picture. I love black and white pictures, and for the very reasons you wrote.

am i seeing the scroll work to the left of the
jar also reflected in the jar?

ELK said...

..many time I feel the photos are not very well done but I am having fun with this project thanks so much for all the encouraging comments, they mean the world to me!
..the scroll candelabras are in the back hallway where I work and the reflection is a window at home...but I can see that resemblance now that you mention it...

Great thought "to click with joy . to focus on the outward .
to be less critical . to be". Thanks for that.
