I can't believe it's the end of August already - that's less than four months until Christmas!! Enough about that big event and back to this month's photographic challenge, the theme being black and white. Rather than do black and white photos, I have taken photos of black and white things.
1. The shed exhibition at the botanical gardens for the festival of architecture had a few contenders but I chose this one as if you look at it too long it makes your eyes go funny.
2. When walking along the Caledonian canal we came across this discarded black and white drum. There were freshly painted ones nearby but I felt sorry for this one that is a little rough around the edges.
3. A beautiful black and white cat that we met when we were out for a drive one day. I have a soft spot for black cats (obviously) and black and white ones as they are the least likely to be adopted from a rescue centre - here's a blog I wrote previously, IN PRAISE OF BLACK CATS, which talks about that very subject.
4. Black and white dolphins in Hopeman. Hopeman is a lovely little town 22 miles east of where we live on the Moray coast. It's a great spot for walking as there is a coastal path and it also has a fabulous ice cream parlour, Stew'n Drews which makes fabulous scrummy ice cream. The dolphins are there because the Moray Firth which Hopeman looks over, has the largest group of dolphins in the UK.
5. Black and White clock. We found this beautiful old town clock in Ullapool, which is on the North West coast of Scotland. It's so ornate and pretty, not something you would see in a modern town and is why I love the quaint little towns that keep their history alive.
There you have it, my five photos for the theme of Black and White. Wait, we're missing one very important picture so I'm going to have to add a bonus photo for you - how could I do any blog with black in the title without including our own little black monster, Muffin. This is her 'stop taking pictures of me and leave me in peace' face.
Why don't you hop over to P J's blog and see what my fellow bloggers have come up with for their black and white theme - click HERE to visit.
Until next time, be good, stay safe, and appreciate the different colours in our world.
