These aren’t really the sort of barrels you’d want to roll anywhere.  It definitely wouldn’t be a barrel of fun. However, “Black and White” is the third Monday challenge over at Sally’s blog and this is my entry.  I hope your week’s off to a great start and if you take photos with a non-traditional camera, feel free to join us.

  1. Good morning Janet! I love your black and white choice.
    Beautifully composed and executed.
    Have a wonderful week.

    The cacti work so well in black and white. Wonderfully sculptural too!

    • One of the things I constantly enjoy is how different a shot looks in B&W as opposed to color. The viewer looks at different things in one than the other and the ease with which we can try B&W is astonishing, especially when I remember how I used to have to wait to have film developed and then, if the shot didn’t turn out well, it was too late to take another one and you had to pay for the developing anyway.


  3. Truly, enjoyed the composition of the barrel cactus, which works so well in monochrome. The black and white allows for emphasis on the details that make this variety so captivating. Happy Photo Challenge.

  5. That’s an amazing shot, Janet. What is it? I’ve never seen anything like it before.

  6. Amy says:

    Awesome, Janet!! 🙂

  7. Oh wow, what amazing fractal patterns! I would have never seen this in a mere cactus; the black and white treatment suits is very well.

    • Hannah, the patterns aren’t nearly as obvious in color, although the cacti are still pretty. Nice to hear from you. I hope you’re doing well. Any new cookbooks in the works?


      • Wish I could brag about some big project in the works, but I’ve been somewhat soured on the whole cookbook writing gig as of late… I’d sure love to start something new, but not to be taken advantage of by greedy publishers again. For now, I’m pretty happy just supplying the photos for other peoples’ recipes.

      • You do a superb job of that, Hannah. Relax and enjoy.

  8. This is amazing. Love your work.

    Wonderful choice for your entry today, Janet. The black and white is just perfect. Great perspective!

  10. Tina Schell says:

    Love this one Janet – great response!

  11. Norma says:

    Hi Janet, that would be a difficult barrel to move.;) I loved the pattern as it is more prominent because of B&W. Great one! 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
