« on: April 30, 2013, 03:54:34 PM »
There has been discussion about a black and white thread here at DD.

So I'll start this off.

Let's see your black and white photos.

Great to have a mono thread, as I'm a big fan!  Here are a few of mine:

1940's singers at a recent airshow.  A77 + 135STF



On a Caribbean island, the name of which escapes me momentarily!  January 2013.   A77 + 18-135 & heavily cropped



This was on Bainbridge Island, near Seattle, February this year.  Also A77 + 18-135



And one from 2011 at the Addo Elephant Park in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.  A700 + 70-300 G

Really like the tree roots Kurt. Interesting shot of the lichen too.

I was walking yesterday and saw this old tree bleached by the sun. It is probably a limber pine or white pine with gnarly branches created by wind.
