Black and white wednesday

Today is black and white wednesday again over at the wonderful Long Road to China. I see the wild poppy heads in the garden every day and watch as they get more weathered by the elements and if you rattle them you can hear the seeds inside. I find such beauty in their ageing.

  8. That's not something you see every day... I love how artistic this is! It's a great photo, one that I could see enlarged and hung decoratively in a living room.

  16. Wow! I don't fully understand what b&w is about - it's amazing how you captured all of these lovely textures. I know that, taking out the color focuses one on the true story being told - like here, for example! =]

    Love, Katy
