It’s a black and white kind of day. Grey and chilly. Almost the complete opposite of the weather of yesterday and the day before. It’s the end of the best of the season. Cold is seeping in through all the cracks.

            1. Me too. Which is why I doubt I’m ever going to be really thrilled about flowers in monochrome. It’s not just my monochrome flowers. I’m underwhelmed by everyone’s monochrome flowers. Now, if you could add the scent, THEN you’d have something ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. it leaks in under the doors and the dogs don’t close the flap. They like to sit IN the house with their little house outside. I haven’t been able to explain about heat and boilers and the price of oil, but I keep trying ๐Ÿ™‚

      I think the night heron looks better in black & white than he did in color. The feather pattern is clearer ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Your pictures are beautiful. These somehow catch the forlorn of a summer past and autumn present and winter coming. The changing of the guard as it were. The flowers particularly, seem burnt, as if worn out. It’s an incredible depiction of that change and says so much more! More can be read into this set of pictures. About life. Aging, coming of age, changes as we grow older. Beautiful!


  2. Then I chose the right theme for you ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the composition with two flowers, but my absolute favourite is your bird against the blown out background. It may be black and white, but your world looks quite attractive to me. Thank you for the fabulous shots!


    1. Thank you. The bird came out really well. I did a little manipulation to increase contrast and blow the background to almost solid white. I wish there was a tool to do that … or if there is, I wish I owned it ๐Ÿ™‚ It was fun ๐Ÿ™‚
