I know you must be getting board of my photos, but its what I do here at the Cove ! There is so much to capture and in so many different ways. Not only am I taking Macro photos I am also taking Black & Whites. I have always liked the look of Black & White photos especially when you photograph old subjects, like Historical buildings or Antique pieces or even old trees, to me Black and White photos tell the subjects story of old and their History or just looks good lol. My camera also does Sepia and that will be my next challenge !


         We bought this lantern from a hardware store .  Black & White kind of  makes it look Antique !


                                                    Using different lighting and shadows !



  Our Country Cove in Black & White, This farm house was built in 1895 ! It was first an old school house back in the early 1800’s . Part of the school house is still with in the cellar !


     Our front porch in Black & White . What a different look it has to being taken in color !

                                         Until next time , hope you have a wonderful day !

Not getting tired of your photos, Elaine. I've been catching up on blog reading today and enjoyed the B&W treatments and the earlier macro shots. Thanks for showing the closeup of a wild mushroom.
