Friday My Town Shoot Out..Black and White


I love a good black and white shot...lots of contrast. So one of my favorite black and white subjects are flowers...lots of pop!! The above marigold I featured last week in color..here is the B&W version.

Water droplets....I love water shots...

Mums are perfection in black and white..

New Cone Flowers...wonderful...


Of course a good person shot is great in black and white..but ya have to get just the right contrast...

Here is a wonderful family I found in the woods..they posed for me:)

I let a bit of color seep back into this shot..

Oh and fog...I adore fog in black and white!!

Even blurry fog...love it!!

Being a pen and ink artist..I couldn't let black and white pass without a little artwork:)

Happy Weekend all!!! Hugs, Sarah

Oh, my Lord! I'm a bit speechless. Gorgeous photos! And an absolutely lovely drawing!

Kerry said...

I like it that you included a drawing. Thanks. Your flower pictures are very elegant and just so beautiful. The third one seems to have just a tinge of sepia and I wonder how you did that; is it just de-saturating the color? It is very beautiful.

Beautiful Sarah. I especially like the fog- the colors look especially rich. And you know how much I like your ink art-- lovely.

Hope your weekend is grand. xo jj

Your blurry fog photo is the way it looks here today. Snow has been on the ground for a few weeks, sun comes out and melts a little of it and then more snow so it pretty much stays about a foot deep but today there is the added beauty of fog. Love it. I like the black and white mum. It is beautiful.

Isn't it funny how a lack of color can change how we perceive things? I could NOT have told you that first picture was a marigold, despite twenty years of growing the things! Beautiful work--thank you for sharing it.

Oh wowww, Sarah! Your photos are gorgeous! I never would have guessed that the first one was a marigold And beautiful shots of people as well. You should be a professional photographer!

I love your drawing. I'm mesmerized by all the beautiful wood grain. And Ooh! You have the kanji symbol for gate! Cool!

You asked if I sell prints. I currently don't. If there is anything that interests you, please let me know. I'd be happy to send it. :)
