Black and White Wednesday

I love black and white pictures.  The focus is on the subject and the forms, not on the colors.  B/W pictures with high contrast are the best, they feel strong, they have an attitude.

I am posting these pictures as part of a black and white Wednesday installment started this summer by Susan from The Well Seasoned Cook.

The photos below were all shot in color but turned black and white on iPhoto.

Frittata ingredients, eggs, shallots and garlic

Cabernet grapes, ready for harvest.

White anemone flower

A beautiful thing.

The pictures are gorgeous. The objects really stand out in B/W. I'll be looking forward to Wednesdays to see your beautiful pics!

Rosa, the grape picture is my favorite too, both in color and in B/W.

Mister Meatball, thanks for visiting.

Sandra, thanks for the feedback. I hope to participate again.

They are very different and all very nice: I like them all!

Laura said...

Simona, thanks! It is amazing how not all the color pictures look good when turned b/w. I am still learning.

Hi Laura! I am visiting your blog for the first time. You have the most incredible photos. My favorite is the b/w Cabernet grapes. Definitely a blue ribbon photo.
You know, we have a friend from Perugia, Italy who visited us a while back and made us tiramasu. Era fantastico!
Incidentally, I am in the Sacramento area here in California. I will be back to read your posts again

Gourmet Getaways, thanks for visiting. I love that picture too, more in B?W that in actual color.

Mario, thanks for visiting. I love Tiramisu' too, it is such a rich and simple dessert. Please come back again!

Thank you, Laura, for your ingredients still life - bowls of eggs are always so very pretty and precious. And your grapes are particularly gorgeous. I am glad you are participating in BWW.
