Wordless Wednesday in B and W 248,250/365

Linking with Rachel for Wordless Wednesday, but with Words over at "and then she {snapped}"...what a great blog name.  I can totally relate to both meanings. 

and then, she {snapped}

While I appreciate black and white photos, I don't think to use them too often, and I'm not sure I have a sense when a black and white image might be a better choice than a colorful one.  Over the last few days however I've, without any thought, processed some photos in black and white.  Now of course, I'm wondering why-while in the same breath just thinking "oh go with it".  Less thinking more doing.  Thought I'd share.

A quick snap while I was sitting at a stop sign

I have a thing for RR stuff and for graffiti.

Of the 3 shots this is my favorite.  There was something so somber about this sheer casually swaying on a light breeze.

This one is not black and white, but has a desaturated feel....thought I'd throw it in.  It seems to fit with the mood.  I love this reflection.

Thank you for taking a peek at my images today.  Hope your Wednesday has pleasant uplifting words somewhere along the way.

Very neat shots - I think it's your lighting. Creates a mysterious mood. Love that!

Nice monochromes. I'm partial to repetition and narrow.

That third shot is my favorite too, great images.

I'm looking at these and thinking "wow, her practice practice practice of 365 is really paying off". I love your black and whites. and more often than not, when I take a shot thinking it will look great converted, it doesn't. but you've captured some really good stuff here. Just in case you don't, I see a lot of growth in your photos. A-mazing.

I love your b&w shots! I love texture; I think it is emphasized better in b&w.
