I have savored each image this morning. I keep going back to the first one -- over and over. I love how you make everyday things so special.

Elk, each of these images is beautifully composed and heartfelt! And, you know how I can't resist B&W!!!
Happy day to you:)

"relish the absence of color". Wow. Just wow. I have such a difficult time living up north, where 6+ months of the year are cold and colorless. But you have made monotone something lovely for once, instead of something hateful and dreary.
