Black & White

My attempts at black & white images.


Last year we had to have some trees felled, unfortunately due to age they had became too tall and they had become a little dangerous in high winds.  The above tree had actually been struck by lightening and was dangerous to the other trees surrounding it, but it has and will keep our wood burning stove going for quite a long time.  It was also quite interesting to watch. how they climbed the very tall trees, not something you see everyday. 

I think they are candidates for my ‘Occupation Category’

The Dogs of Shuttleworth Bedfordshire

Last year 2017, we visited Suttleworth in Bedfordshire to see an air show.  While we were waiting to see the vintage planes, I took photos of the canine visitors.

The Shuttleworth Collection is an aeronautical and automotive museum located at the Old Warden Aerodrome, Old Warden in Bedfordshire, England.  It is one of the most prestigious in the world due to the variety of old and well-preserved aircraft.


I just found this little photo of my youngest dog, Toffee, he is all grown up now.   He loved to make friends when he was a puppy, he still does, but he was fearless then……not so much now, he is a little bit more cautious.   I wish I had the follow up photo to the sniff, it was a kiss from Toffee to the big nose which was sniffing him…….I wondered if big dog was thinking ‘Dinner’

A Monochrome Landsberg am Lech, Bavaria, Southern Germany

On of my favourite places, Landsberg am Lech, in Bavaria, Southern Germany.  I have taken numerous amounts of photos of this enchanting town, lots of which I have posted before, so this time they have had the mono treatment.  I am just experimenting with them, as the shapes of the buildings seem to lend themselves to black and white . 

A Road Trip Across Switzerland

Back in 2015 we travelled across some of Switzerland, we started from Munich in Bavaria, had lunch with some friends at their house in Switzerland (can’t remember the name of the village) and then on to our hotel in Merligen near Interlaken, so we could go up the Jungfrau.  As I am sorting through photos, I have grouped the photos all together……just so I can remember the trip.  All the photos are taken from the car window as we were travelling along, husband is at the wheel, so no dangerous driving, well not much 🙂
