Photography Sunday — Beauty in Black & White

One of my favorite escapes from the daily grind and writing is to go to the beach.  I love to walk, take my dogs for a run on the beach, and I bring my camera for good measure because you never know what you’re going to see.  I find that some of the most beautiful subjects are often emphasized in black and white.

This particular day it was really windy, I mean really windy.  I saw a nice shot up a beach path and I had to make sure that I kept my mouth closed and breathed shallow; otherwise, I’d be tasting sand for the rest of the day. 

Here’s a curious seagull that wouldn’t leave me alone.  I was trying to get some shots of sea lions around the harbor.  I guess this little guy wasn’t camera shy.

This is one of my favorite beach shots.  The lighting this particular day was outstanding.  I love the contrast in this photo.  This is a stretch of beach I often walk with my dogs.

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. The old black & white movies were more enjoyable, also. Like listening to a mystery story on the radio, black & white gave your imagination a chance to create.
