    1. Some of these pictures I’ve taken MANY times. We are in a river valley with a lot of dams and waterfalls, so we’ve taken lots of picture of what there is — dams and swans and herons and ducks. No cities at all, unless you count our town which really isn’t a city or even close.

      1. Sounds idyllic. I wish I lived somewhere as quiet as that. Alas not yet, but aiming for a castle in Northumberland one day… 🙂


        1. It is beautiful, but like most small towns, poorly run by people who are clueless about running a town. It’s easier now that we don’t have kids in school. It also helps to have interests of your own because there’s nothing to do in town except grocery shop, get a haircut, or take pictures. We take pictures. I don’t even get my hair cut. I don’t trust the cutters.

          1. I don’t blame you there, things on that front aren’t much different here. I don’t trust hairdressers either! I reckon I’d be alright in a place like yours, as long as I could indulge my love of the medieval, which at least I can do here. 🙂


  1. love these! My husband teases me all the time that all I like is “rocks and water”. We like the same images! I’m always taking photos of boats, rocks, docks, water, swans…..

    1. More of us are also more artistic with black & white. The black & white pictures we took as kids weren’t very good. Our cameras weren’t very good. Those old Brownie cameras were mostly pretty bad. Anything we use these days is better than they were.


    2. Covert, B&W FILM still reigned when I started in TV news. Yes, way back in the olden days. We also shot B&W silent film for “lesser” events. I still recall cranking up the Bolex to shoot B&W film. We used cartridges to augment sound onto the silent film.
