Black and White Sunday...Saw Palmetto and Palm



These Saw Palmetto trees are in a circle around our biggest pine tree. I have dozens of photos of it from over the years. I found if I take the photos in black and white and edit them a little in PicMonkey, the details are amazing.

Click on photos to see details.

The reason I talk to myself, is I am the only one whose answers I accept...

quote by George Carlin but it is true about me...

Below is a palm in the corner of the yard but not sure of the name.

It is interesting how the details pop in black and white...I've noticed that before. I'll be seeing some palmettos next month when we go to Jekyll for our family beach trip!
Happy Sunday to you!

All those lines look so interesting in B&W!

Awesome details in your b&w's. I love the quotes.

Terrific views in B&W - I like what you did with these. The quotes are good too!

I love the direct contrasts and all the grades of shadows in between. Great job.

they make for great images in b&w!

Ann said...

Awesome black and whites. I like the quotes too. I think I would probably kill a fake plant the same way...lol
The quote by George Carlin is almost the same thing I say all the time

Ginny said...

The last two are my favorites! Beautiful and classic!

They do make beautiful black and whites!!!! Great idea, Sandra!...:)JP

Pretty dazzling in black and white!! And the fern fronds in front of the pool is a great post too.

Susannah said...

These pictures are amazing and you sure can see all of the detail. My sister in South Carolina has a Palmetto something or other in her front yard. She has to trim the fronds from the bottom. My, it is so pretty. I really like these black and whites.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Plant you anywhere and you will find some creativity, Sandra, even in the back yard, and I so agree with the Carlin quote.

I love B/W photos and these are great. Those two quotes are great, the first one really cracked me up.

Linda said...

You can make absolutely ANYTHING a work of art!!! Loved seeing what you do with your photos!

Deb said...

love the black and white photos....love the artsy designs of the plants....

George said...

These are marvelous black-and-white photos. You've done a great job of bringing out the details.

Linda said...

A good idea to edit the palms in black and white as you get interesting contrasts and shapes. Something to try after I've visited the Palm House in town. Have a good day, Sandra.

Rose said...

I used to always keep B&W in one of my film cameras...

Debby@Just Breathe said...
