Picture This #249 ~ White, Grey And Black

Many thanks to Anders for hosting this week's theme at short notice. Great theme he's chosen....I guess it's a longer way of saying 'Black And White' LOL. Most B&W shots contain greyscale in them anyway. 

I always seem to use the same shots for 'Black And White' themes on various sites and groups, so recently I did some conversion work on some old faves, so that I have some new ones to use.

Here are mine:

1) Scott Memorial, Cardiff Bay, Wales
The Wind & The Sea

2) Cygnets In The Nest
Cygnets

3) Gunnera Flowers
Gunnera Flowers

4) Rhea (flightless South American bird)

    1. More like "I'm staring at something in the distance, and I'm not sure what it is, so I'll keep perfectly still" LOL.

  4. If Rheas could talk. It would be saying " I will get you the next time". LOL Love the close up of the chicks and the flowers. The first shot of Scott Memorial is really nice. There was a lot of work that went into making that memorial. Love what they and you did.

  6. Scott looks wonderfully "frozen", Love the chicks and the big bird, but above all the Gunnera flowers, they shine in the light.

    1. Thanks Pat :-)) I was really happy with that shot of the Gunnera. There were little pools of sunlight creeping in between the leaves and onto the flowers like little spotlights.

  7. Love your shots, Mitch. Would like to know more about the Scott Memorial, it looks modern and medieval at the same time. The baby swans are just too cute and for detail, can't beat that capture of the rhea.
