The week the prompt atCee’s Black & White Challenge is House. The prompt said any house, big, small, a bird house, dog house, firehouse, lighthouse, etc.
This is an upside down House in the Azores. We aren’t sure why it was there. My husband thinks it is a piece of art. It was huge (as you can see by the car next to it) the size of a regular house. It was interesting whatever the reason it was there.
This week the prompt at Cee’s Black &a White Photo Challenge is Fences and Gates. I found quite a few that I liked so I many be carrying this theme over for a few days.
I chose this gate to a house in Italy. I love the way in Italy, a gate isn’t just a way to keep things in or out, but a beautiful part of the architecture.
Looking for thing to share for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge Things Found in the Kitchen, I found quite a few pictures I could use. So I’m sharing more than one this time.
This photo was taken in the kitchen of a restaurant outside of Rome, Italy. This was an awesome restaurant. The food was fantastic and the building look like something out of a movie. The pots and the tall coffee maker (I think) are all copper.
The prompt at Cee’s Black &a White Photo Challenge is anything Found in the Kitchen. When having a drink in Verona, Italy they served us chips in a colander. I thought it was a great idea and usually why to use a colander.
The prompt at Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is Weather.
We have very changeable in Colorado (We say if you don’t like the weather wait 5 minutes 😄) so it was easy to find a photo to use today. I love these clouds.
This week at Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge the prompt is Pets. I thought I’d use this picture of our daughter’s dog. Every summer she comes out with the grandkids and spends some time with us. She likes to look out the dining room windows. The windows are low enough that she can look out them. I’m sure she is saying, “are they home yet?”
This week at Cee’s Black & White Challenge the prompt is bricks or stone. As I’ve said before, I’m fascinated with the architecture of Europe. I love all the old buildings, the stone and bricks they used. This building has both bricks and stones. I love the iron gate too.
Today at Cee’s Black &a White challenge the prompt is in the distance. This picture is high in the mountains of Colorado. I was trying to get a picture of the old log cabin, but it was a ways away.
This week Cee’s Black and White Challenge is indoor hallways, walkways and elevators. When looking for a photo to use it struck me that I don’t take a lot of indoor architectural pictures. I’m always take photos of the outside of buildings, alleyway, etc., but I guess not to many inside.
I almost didn’t use the picture below, it is of the David in Florence. I took the picture from the end of the hallway. As I was looking at it I thought it’s to far away, but decided to try it in black and white. It was amazing that once I turned it black and white the statue seemed to be highlighted. I haven’t done any editing, just turned it B&W. I guess the sun shining on the statue made it stand out once the color was taken away. Think I’m going to try turning more pictures that I’m not crazy about to B&W and see what happens.
Today the prompt at Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is All Things Farm Related. The small town we spend the summers in is in cattle country. I grew up in the city, so it is fascinating to me to watch the work the ranchers do. I really like to watch the haying process. I love it when I go to town and see the hay cut, then the next time it is gathered in rows, then finally made into rolls (it use to be bales, but is now the giant roll)
