Paula invites us to post the same image both in black and white and in colour, any topic.
I like the shadows in this photo when it is black & white, even though it is less vibrant than the color. I also felt it fit with the message on the plaque attached to the bench.
Paula has chosen Music as the theme for Black & White Sunday this week. My husband started taking piano lessons about eight years ago- he had never learned as a child. I am fortunate to listen to him practice every night, filling the house with music. Our piano technician,as they are called these days, as opposed to tuners, has become a good friend and always plays for us before he leaves. Here is a small sample of Loren’s playing along with images of him and my husband.
This week Paula asked if we would join her in celebrating Mother’s Day in Black & White Sunday.
My great grandmother holding my grandmother – 1914
My Grandmother holding my mother 1932
My mother and me 1960
Mothers become Grandmothers
Daughters become Mothers
This week Paula says: You must have in your archives a photo that you consider imperfect, but you love it anyway, or the photo maybe perfect, but the subject is not? Whichever the case, how do you feel about sharing some imperfection for this challenge?
Tree Swallows are constantly in motion, occasionally landing long enough to capture. These 3 were still but by the time I attempted to focus, 2 had taken flight and the 3rd was about to. When I uploaded the photo I didn’t care that it was blurry, it reminded me of that moment and I still liked it. Imperfect, but okay.
