SUNDAY POST: Black & White

18 Aug

This week the theme at Jake Sprinter’s SUNDAY POST is Black & White. It is Saturday morning in New York, and the weekend is off to a rainy start and the weather outside is gloomy, with shades of gray and close to black and white.  Jake says: “Black and white as a description may be considered something of a misnomer, in that the images are not ordinarily starkly contrasted black and white, but combine black and white in a continuum producing a range of shades of gray.”

I browsed through my pictures and managed to find a few pictures for the challenge, edited some of them, but surprisingly, I have one picture that is Black and White and I did not edit it at all.  If you have visited my blog in recent months you have already met Georgie, my crazy, funny, and adorable cat. He is black and white all over and this picture was taken on a snowy morning when he was sitting by the window against a gray wall….take a look…this is one of my favorite pictures and fits Jake’s description above.

    The snow just had to be in there! That table looks like a bed- very comfy. Love the last shot too.

      Thank you Naomi – still learning some photography tricks, so not sure what works and I decided to include different pictures.
