Shades of Gray

The parking meter posing in front of tall doors

Two comfy lounge chairs where work is abhored

A bouquet of roses bound tightly by ribbon and wishes

A meal shared and a sink full of dirty dishes

And the need to photograph it all,

For which I'm happy to answer the call.

  1. Beautiful! There is something infinitely serene, almost melancholic in black and white photography. It is as if the lack of colors make us feel stronger emotions instead.
    Love all the pictures - as you write, they all tell a story.

  2. There is something so gritty and real about black & white photography. I love the shadows formed in the sink photo and you can almost sense those chairs have only just been vacated.

  3. These photos suit my mood. The sun looks good even in B&W. The sun. Where is the sun??

  5. Well, Lisa, the sun is not in Pennsylvania. Maybe if we rule all the places it isn't, we can figure out where it is.

    I also love the sink of dishes. I love it.

    I am glad you feel the need to capture it all Stevie! Carry on!

  9. Isn't it amazing how black and white will completlely change how you look at an image?...I absolutely love how those dishes look in the sink....the light, the shadows, the composition...and I might not have seen this if it was in color...

I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
