Summer Black and Whites

1.) Experiments with the sunset and a quite lovely delphinium, back before the caterpillars ate it; 2.) An airplane engine from the Aerospace Museum of California; 3.) A bank or brae, or something at the UC Davis Arboretum; 4.) Marina Beach (to nobody's surprise); 5.) The UC Davis Arboretum again, with a swallow; 6.) A Cessna T-50 (ca. 1945), one of the Aerospace Museum's latest projects.

Your black and white photography is quite lovely.

Thanks very much! It's always interesting to me to see the shapes and lights that black-and-white emphasizes--or downplays. It was an especially good option in the bird picture--when I was at the Arboretum, Putah Creek had a lot of algae in it and while, abstractly, it was a very charming colour, as water it was a bit of a shocker!

Woow nice shots, MOlly!! Did you take them in color and processed them with some software or you could chose black and white on your camera...???

Thank you! I do the black and white on the computer. I think my camera has a setting for that, but do I ever think of it at the time? Nooo!

Just awesome, all of them but specially the first one.

Thanks very much. I was delighted to see your pictures of Coyoacán, especially the one of the church with the lights, at night.
