CB&W Nature: GTNP & YNP

What great timing for this theme! My husband and I just got back from a road trip to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone NP. In the U.S. we are celebrating the 100 year anniversary of a forward thinking decision to conserve these natural spaces for all to respect and enjoy. Every time I visit one of our National Parks I am awed by what I see.

Go! Plan a visit. Just please remember these are natural spaces with all the inherent dangers. Read the signs. Respect the wildlife. Follow the rules. Above all, don’t be a statistic.

Sepia Studies – Cee’s B&W Challenge

Here are my offerings for Cee’s B&W photo challenge of the week – sepia. There are about a dozen photos here. (I had a hard time narrowing them down.) I hope you enjoy them.

Mall Balls

Portland1102

For Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge, I had to dig back into the archives (okay, so only a couple of years) to find this photo I took at Pioneer Place during the holidays. The mall is three stories tall with a skylight roof, and hanging over the escalator were these silver balls. I just had to take a B&W. If you look closely, you may be able to see me. 🙂
