BLACK AND WHITE

I can't look at the screen for too long, but when I saw Carmi's Thematic Challenge this week was Black and White, I had to have a go, as it is one of my favourite photograhic methods. I dug around in my files (it being too cold to go outside for the moment) and came up with these:





Soapsuds under a running tap




Tulip leaves after the rain




The growing tip of a young Monkey Puzzle tree.

I get cross-eyed trying to do too much on the computer, but I manage to keep reading most your blogs, even if I can't say so!

Its going to drive me nuts not being able to read properly for at least a 6 weeks, maybe even 2 months! A prayer for patience would be appreciated!

I will definitely pray for that - I know how frustrating it must be.

Gilly, you have a great eye for photography - especially in black and white. These are really good!

You are a talented photographer!

So glad to see that you are back, even if it's part time. Your new header photo is gloriously colorful and seasonal! And your black and whites are so good! Take it easy. We'll be here when you get back.

I hoping you have a quick recovery. I really do like the picture of the soapsuds under a running tap.

Gilly, you have my prayers and patience. Heal quickly.
I love the soap suds picture, so unique.

You could start a career as a photographer - as soon as the eyes mend. 6 weeks will fly past - why not listen to some music for a change, or get a couple of those book dvd thingymabobs? xxxxx

Excellent B/W pics Gilly - I especially like the first two. Hope that your patience is rewarded with really good vision in a couple of months.

Gilly, do you know you can change the "view" on the computer to make everything bigger? I hope your eyes heal fast!

Your photos are beautiful. Very professional looking.
