Black and White Wednesday

Aren't the colours of nature just wonderful?

Sometimes I take them for granted, they are around us every day, so I don't notice them, but imagine if they were taken away?

These were taken on our recent trip to Pisa, this was the view from outside our hotel (though not from the balcony, there were trees in the way!). Can you see the Leaning Tower and the Duomo in the distance?

For more B and W click on the link at the top to go to Lisa's blog. You will see some amazing photography there.


  1. Lovely shot of a lovely view. I do prefer the color version though, I must admit.

    My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  2. Very cool. What a wonderful view you have.

  3. That is an extraordinary moment you caught in bloom. Yes, color is an amazing gift to the sighted and we don't even see it most of the time. Great reminder. I have seen the world in gray and I much prefer the colors ;).

  4. Yes, the color version is so warm and soft. But, in the b/w I can see how well the trees frame the distant buildings. And I suddenly notice that there seem to be flowers on one side of the photo only. Those dark red ones just disappear. It makes me appreciate the color even more. Maybe we need to look at things both ways?

  5. What a lovely view. I love how you have framed that shot. There is warmth in the colours, but remote beauty in the black and white.

    I have driven through Pisa before and found a fantastic sea-food restaurant tucked in a hidden little corner. Happy days.

  6. Lovely photos both have special qualities! we were in Pisa in 2007 and we were there on our honeymoon in 1981. Fabulous place! Thanks for sharing and bringing back some lovely memories - haven't been in bloggerland for a long time, only posting sporadically so I should blush - spending too much time on Twitter - do you? I find it fun as a chat/discussion forum. especially tv programmes that give rise to discussion!

  7. Both are lovely pictures. Brings back memories.
