Project Alicia : WW: Black and White

WW: Black and White

Do not underestimate the power of black and white. Timeless. Thought provoking images that lend themselves to powerful, emotional response. Next time you aren't sure whether to do color or not, try removing it.

But this post isn't exactly about desaturating images...

Today I'm stepping away from my normal nature landscapes to bring you something a little different for The Nurture Photography Challenge with Rebecca of Bumbles and Light and Kristi of Live and Love out Loud.  This week happens to be black and it's open through Thursday. You can jump in anytime- there's new weekly themes through March 1st. You can find details here photo blackandwhitepagesm_zps4dd26155.jpg
And if you missed the Manual Photography Cheat Sheet or Storyboard Templates, make sure to stop over and snag them!

You may also enjoy my Love Day Freebies or Mini Monster Cookies.

------------------------------------------

This is Wordless Wednesday. But as you can see, I have a hard time keeping it wordless, so Wordful or Not So Wordless posts are always welcome here. You can grab my button in the sidebar but it is not required to participate. Just grab any photo and come link up! And if you'd like to connect with other WW participants, click HERE or one of the thumbnails below. It's a fun way to meet some new folks!

  6. I think that might be the fewest words I’ve seen here on a
    WW.  ;) 
    Very cool B&W…love the templates. 
    The feathers in the center are just too cool…and I always find myself
    wondering where you find such cool looking cameras.

  8. Love these photos! Especially the feathers and the polka dots. Black & White seem to be all the rage for the upcoming season. I walked by Saks 5th Ave. today and all the windows had black and white fashion, including some beautiful gowns and slacks from the Ralph Lauren collection.

  11. Black and white photos are always beautiful. I agree with you, they are timeless. I still doubt myself a lot of the times because I am not sure of my shots. I am still learning not to be so hard on myself since I am still learning.

  17. I love the splash of yellow in a few of your shots. Typically, I think of black and white as photos that I have desaturated, but I LOVE your interpretation!

  20. Alicia, you're awesome!!!

    My headboard is black and I have black and white silhouettes above it. Thought I would never do black and white, but, I surprised how beautiful it looks.

    Great pictures!!

  37. I love the dynamic of Black and White. When I have a dedicated office, I am going to do the lower portion of the walls in alternating stripes of the color to capture an old timey boutique flavor.

  38. That's a fantastic Black & White collection. Thank you for sharing and hosting the WW party.

  39. Alicia, I love these. I am a fan of B&W photography. But the way you added a splash of yellow to some is beautiful. I love color splashes - I do them on Photoshop.  But I never thought of doing them in "real time" shots like these.  :)

  40. Love the collection of black and white (and that small pop of yellow :-)
