Black and White - Backyard Jungle





Taking zillions of photos in my back yard, makes me Happy.... MadSnapper

Love, love the black and white photos, those Florida-ish plants with all of their lines and shadows make beautiful prints! Corie Ten Boom is one of my favorite people from the past, and her quote really hit home. I am glad to be back home with internet access so I can come around and visit. Great post Sandra!

Really love the black and white photos.
Very stark and the lines have so much character to them.
Not getting my energy back since my return from Mexico. That Mexico Lung and Dusty Road Throat just about did me in.
Hope to get back in the blogging mode soon.

WOWZERS!!!I am blinded to everything except the first one. Gorgeous....zebra, modern art, impressionistic, insightful, introspective, amazing, stunning,timeless, perfect, just plain AWESOME! I could look forever! You are really a true artist with snapping and editing. All the tiny shadows and lines combine in a wonderful way that only YOU would see.

I LOVE these! B&W has a beauty all its own. I like the quotes too, especially the one by Steve Marabol.

Stacey Dawn said...

Very cool textury patterns with those palms!

You definitely notice the detail more in black and white! Great quotes!

Gorgeous photos, wise quotes. It doesn't get much better than that.

I thought the color was beautiful but these are amazing!

The black and white images really show the patterns and intricate designs.

George said...

I really like your black-and-white photos of your 'jungle'. By the way, I had the pleasure of meeting Corrie ten Boom. She was quite a lady.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

These are neat shots of the leaves and they look good in black and white. Great quote by Corrie! I've read some of her books, she was an amazing woman.

Susannah said...

Great quotes but the pictures are stunning. I love to see the Black and whites. Why do I notice more in a black and whiter other that a colorful picture? My crazy eyes ..maybe!

Hope you are happy and had fun with your friend out taking pictures lately!

Take care -

I'm so desperate for green things, I would never think of doing these in black and white...very nice!

I have to say those were very pretty in black and white.

These black and white pictures are great, as usual :) Hope you're having a good week. I'm having a cold so take it easy, still have to work though.
