musing about life . past and present . in black and white .

closed

wide eyed at the marvel of bare branches in the middle of nowhere

remote

comforted by the invitation . as the soft air of spring visits . a familiar space

anticipation

swept up in a long ago memory . loving hands that held the smooth wood

old

images here from the archives of a completed black and white project

Beautiful black and white pictures--I think many times they make more of a statement and impact than color does. Mickie
