Experimenting with Black & White Photography

I love black & white photography.
I'm not a professional, but I love how the light and composition play such an important role here. 
It's like a film or book that doesn't really give you the ending and you have to use your imagination to come up with your own view.  
How do you see it?  







Thanks for dropping by. 

I hope you have a wonderful week! 

See you soon. 
Becca

Do you even realise how talented you are Becca?
Amazing photos and even the objects you choose to photograph is so creative like that rope! I love them all!

I am still waiting for Ray to scan my Cree pics so i can email them to you.
I am also sooo excited right now ...Stevie Nicks and Rod Stewart are doing a concert tour!!! I am so wanting to take Sam to this. I would love for him to experience my idol!

Great post Becca!
Pamela :)

I adore black and white too. These are beautiful. Love the beautiful texture of the rope and the smoothness of the petals, B & w certainly seems to add an extra dimmension.

Becca, I am very impressed by all the photos but the first one is breathtaking. I can see the north ocean or whipped cream or a bridal dress in it.

Nice! That Pig n Whistle phot sure brought back memories; it was our teen hangout back home and is long gone. Where is this one?
