A rainy Wednesday in the country

Yancunyong suggested that we try taking some more photographs in black and white.  I had to find my camera book and find the directions again for the black and white setting on my camera.  By the time I did that, it was raining again, but I slipped on a jacket and went out anyway.  I really like some of the shots I got this morning.  See what you think. 

It is still raining.  I need to do some house cleaning, but I think I may take a nap first.  I didn't sleep very good last night. 

I need to get the house in order, soon.  Six of our granddaughters are coming tomorrow for the weekend.  Hope I can last as long as they can! 

And I need to make some banana cookies.  I have couple of bananas that are too ripe for me to eat. 

I love the contrast of the dainty white blooms and the dark leaves.  These are much better than the ones similar to this that I took in color.  They look like little orchids. 



Here's another flower with rain drops.  I like the way the rain drops really stand out in these black and white shots.  I have several different kinds of daisies.  I planted a package of wildflower seed last year.  Most of these are flowers that came back from seed that fell last year.

    All of your B&W photos are awesome!!! I hope you continue to take photos of B&W sometimes.I heartily hope you will have happy and lovely weekend with your granddaughters (^^). I'm envious that they enjoy your handmade banana cookies. Please share your picture of your delicious-looking banana cookies!

  2. I'm going to have to try later to get a picture to the cookies. When I picked up the bananas, they smelled sour instead of sweet so I threw them away. But I will make some another time and share a photo.
    I'm glad you like the black and white shots. I really like the ones of the bean blossoms. I love the contrast of the black and white. I have taken some pictures of them in color and they aren't very striking that way. I do like the effect of the second flower after I tweaked it a bit. I need to experiment more with my photo editing program. Usually all I do is resize so they will load faster.
    I'm looking forward to seeing your black and white shots. I'm sure they will be awesome!

    Droplets on petals are also nice and picture of bean blooms is really great! I like its color gradation on petals and leaves!

  4. Thanks! The droplets of water show up so much better in black and white.
