In the Distance

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.

CB&W-Indoor Hallways, Walkways & Elevators

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.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge- All Things Farm Related 

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) 

CB&W -Candid 

Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is Candid. 

I love this picture of our granddaughter on the swings at the Fair. Every summer Gunnison ( the closest “big” town to our summer cabin) has Cattlemen’s Day Rodeo. The also have a fair with rides, games, etc. 

I love the look on her face. You can tell she is really enjoying herself.
