Monochrome is magic

“What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is
your candle. Your boundaries are your quest”– Rumi

Who would ever think that the absence of colour could tell such stories!

I have submitted On the Estuary for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness this week

    Cybele, you like gothic pictures. Whenever I visit your blog I must find at least one. I love them myself, thus never disappointed. Elated, even. There is a story in everything. Colour or no colour. Night or day.

  2. Amazing as ever, that photography of yours. I like Niamh’s cheeky, chubby little face peeping out of that picture.

    These are terrific “mouse”. It’s a treat when a B&W image portrays more color than an actual color image, right.
    My fav is “evening path”. Cheers!
