I was just thumpin’ around today with the nigglin’ itch to keep blogging even though I’ve already beaten my record for frequency of posting these past couple of days. Didn’t know what to do, though, so I thought I’d flip on over to Patrick Latter’s photography blog and browse around for some inspiration. So here is the inspired blog that follows.
I was so totally entranced by Patrick’s black-and-white photos that I decided to try a hand at black-and-white as well. Obviously, there’s no way I can compare to Patrick. As you can see, it’s clear I’m just a fooler-around, definitely not an expert or a professional like Patrick is. But come on, give a girl a break! After all, these are the first black-and-white photos I’ve ever made!
Although it’s quite clear that this is a park, most of the photos in this post were taken in private gardens belonging to friends.
Well, this isn’t exactly a “private” garden, since anyone can visit it and if you live ’round here I’m sure you’ll recognize this very famous park in Torremolinos which, as I mentioned in a previous post, is one of my favourite towns anywhere.
Now back to gardens again. Wild, overgrown and definitely not very English orchards dominated by orange trees.
Nature is very beautiful in black and white, too.

Thank you for stopping by, Marianne! I’m always so happy to see you here! Black and white photos look “artistic” (even when, like mine, they’re not very!), colour photos look so much more “normal”! Well I like it so much, I’ll be putting up more.
OH well done with the black and white images. It puts a whole new slant on the photos, don’t you think? Lovely!
