  1. Oh yes!!! These both are terrific. Why, just look at the captured sparkle of the tire's spokes. Well done, well done indeed.


    Here is my link to my shadow shots If a tree falls in the swamp, do you HEAR it?

    Hope you're having a great weekend.

  2. These shots are really nice! I don't do it often enough myself, but really do love b&w photography. The grain on that wood is gorgeous. Hi from SSS :)

  4. Hey Bud, I'll take you mountain bike riding up in my Annadel State Park. Even though it is one of the 80 state parks slated to be closed we can still hike and bike ride the 40 miles of trails. Great B&W Genie. I really should do more of it myself.

  5. How appropriate to put the horseshoe shot in black and white. It gives a feeling of bleakness to a place no longer inhabited...

    EVERYWHERE SHADOWS

    Shadows above and shadows below,
    Shadows that blaze and shadows that glow;
    Shadows outside and shadows indoors,
    Shadows on trees and shadows on floors;
    Everywhere shadows calling my name,
    Everywhere shadows no one can tame.
