Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Black and White…French chic

There’s was a lot of rain during the time I enjoyed  in France the last several weeks, (home as of yesterday), which makes some days feel black and white or, in the forest, green and grey.  However, there’s beauty in each of these as well as in color as my first photo attempts to show.  If you want to see more black and white photos, drop by Lens and Pens by Sally, our gracious hostess’ site.


While exploring Melisey’s general store, I came across this cute teapot.  When I looked at the photo, it was in black and white.  Somehow I’d hit the filter on my phone and gotten a black and white photo when I wasn’t even planning on one.  I guess this one was meant to be shared today.


Finally, one of my naturally black and white shots with a shot or two of editing added for pizzazz!  Behold, a lowly glass of water elevated to something more.


  1. Great photos. 😍

  2. Welcome back–the first image is a gem, because it invites me into an ethereal forest to dream and meditate. Thanks. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Thanks, Sally. It was great to be there and it’s great to be back, too. Just finished breakfast and am getting ready to go to the park and see the effects of autumn. I have a feeling I’ll be taking lots of photos. 🙂
