Life in Color: black/grey

It’s been a beautiful month of blacks and greys, but how can we already be in the last month of the year? I’m excited to be putting up Christmas decorations and as we have a smallish artificial tree that is decorated mostly with bird ornaments and other nature items, it seems appropriate to end this month’s theme with a bird photo.

Life in Colour: black/grey

While visiting in southern California, I was mesmerized by the glass sculpture in our daughter’s apartment. This is one of the photos I took of it.

Apologies to anyone whose post I missed over the weekend. My husband, who last week worked 80 hours, finally had an entire weekend off, so we took two road trips, one each day. It was fantastic and probably the first time we’ve been able to do something together for an entire day since the end of summer and that’s no joke. Thanks for your understanding!

…and he does pretty well. Can’t remember where I heard that saying but it seems to fit here.

Some of my favorite things about downtown and high-rise buildings are the reflections you can catch in them. Mostly I prefer my canyon walls to be made of rock, but they don’t reflect nearly as well. 🙂

It may not have been singing in the dead of night but it certainly had something to say! And these birds can say what they say at the top of their lungs.

Life in Colour: black/grey

Monochrome and black and white are often confused, but although black and white is monochrome (one color), monochrome might be a photo with a range of color that’s not black. Grayscale is a monotone image made of only shades of grey/gray. Hence all grayscale images are monotone but not all monotone images are grayscale…or black and white. This is just like whisky, where all Scotch is whisky but not all whisky is Scotch…at least until you’ve had plenty of one or the other. 🙂 Happy Friday!
