  1. These are really great for monochrome and looks so layered and textured which I always love. The second one gorgeous, they all look cool. What’d you do did you take these with monochrome in mind or was your camera already set to monochrome?

    1. the first three were taken in the 1980’s on black and white film with a 35mm camera. I was taking a class to learn how to develop B & W film. The 4th was taken with a digital camera about 10 years ago and used Irfanview to make it grayscale. Thank you so much for stopping by to look at my photos and comment. 🙂

      1. Wow that’s amazing, I didn’t realize they were older photos, it’s great that you kept them, I don’t get rid of pictures either. No wonder they are so gorgeous, most of them were film! A lot of b&w looks flat now-a-days at least from the majority I see taken with point & shoots.

  2. I like them all but I’d probably choose #3 the pots as my favourite. It is interesting that you are saying you shot some of the images on b/w film and then developed them yourself – skillful! 🙂 I remember film well, though I never tried my hand at developing.

      1. I did not know that! Wow, but I actually can understand it. I planted some at my back fence 17 years ago and then 15 years ago I wanted to put in a raised bed close to that same spot and I took out the morning glories. They came back and wrapped themselves around my tomatoes. Every year I’ve had to rip more out. They are tenacious!!
