Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White…you wear it well

Today’s the day when we can say, at least on Sally’s blog and those of the participants, that everything really is black and white.  In their last days, these natural beauties translate seamlessly into that medium.  Like a person who ages well, age isn’t what you notice first, but the character and beauty of the details.  As Rod Stewart once put it, “You wear it well.”

  1. Debbie H says:

    Great shots! I love the wildness of the second photo 😊

  2. Sue says:

    Lovely images, especially the second!

  3. good morning, Janet
    Looks like lion’s tail plants that I grow in my yard. Are they?

  4. Dan Antion says:

    The close-up is beautiful. Good choice for B&W.

  5. The light bathes so beautifully across the seed pod in the second image. Monochrome gives the viewer a chance to really appreciate the design of it. Well done. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Thank you, Sally. I was walking this morning when you posted your beautiful shots. So much now is in the beige-black spectrum and with the dead plants and seed heads, B&W works so well.

      Thanks for hosting the challenge. I always look forward to Mondays.


  6. Hello Janet, what a great submission. And accompanied by an excellent reflection for the day.
    I particularly like the details of the second image.

  7. J. That bottom shot is extraordinary-the focus, light, the precision, even where you placed your signature. It’s like a great painting where the eye travels around and around and sees new details.

  8. Fantastic detail in both images, Janet. 🙂

  9. Amy says:

    Love both, Janet! The second one is really cool! 🙂

  10. You photograph it well! The second photo looks a little like a Rod Stewart’s hair wild and free!
    Happy Monday

    Love them both. But I’m with the rest of the gang, the second one has so much movement it takes your breath away. I’ve been sad that things are getting less colorful around here, now I’m renewed with the idea of featuring more black and white for the texture.

  12. Angeline M says:

    Both beautiful photos, Janet. Black and white definitely took both photos over the top.

  13. Indira says:

    Lovely . What is the second one?

  14. nowathome says:

    great shots, Janet!

  15. These are great! That second one reminds of a bad hair day! LOL! 😀

  16. Majka says:

    you like similar weeds and closeups like… so nice ☺

  17. This is a perfect subject for the challenge. You come up with great shots Janet. They always inspire me!
