Monochrome Weekend

I took this photo a few days ago, just off the beaten path, literally. It may look like I was way out in the wilderness, but not really. I am always on the look out for interesting scenery, someplace to rest my eyes that is not familiar and bland. I think I was distracted by the rusty swampy water contrasted with the bright green clumps of new grass growing like little islands. I checked my rear view mirror twice and carefully pulled the minivan over. I grabbed my little point and shoot digital, set on auto. This could not be a drive by shot. I would need to get out for this one. After uploading the photos I saw all the interesting reflections the trees were making in the murky water. Today I decided to turn it black and white and see what else emerged. Wow. I really like the vertical zebra-like stripes of the reflections; cool, interesting and jungle like.
You can check out what others are posting in monochrome at:http://monochromeweekendtheme.blogspot.com/. I just took a quick look myself and I am speechless. La la lovely. Happy weekend.


  1. The reflections are good, particularly when enlarged.

  2. I love finding places like this... you're right, there is beauty everywhere

  3. You have some interesting images in your blog - nice work!

  4. Lovely. Color can be distracting while B&W gets to the soul of the image.
