We all need colour in our lives, Black and White Wednesday

Some of our colourful photos from Pisa, and their B&W counterparts

They all convince me that colour is a big part of my life. How about you?

I like black and white photos,
especially when they're of people, but sometimes...

you just can't beat colour!

For more B&W wednesdays, head over to Lisa's Blog , Lisa's post today describes their strategies during hurricane Irene. (sorry, blogger won't let me link it today)

I hope all my friends in the US are safe and dry, and that you have your power back. Take care.


  1. Although all the photos are good..... I think the colour ones are the best!

  2. Oh, absolutely, I can not imagine a life without all those fantastic colours.;)
    Love all your images, they do convey your point.;)
    Thank you dear Mimi for your always kind words at my place.;)

  3. I prefer the color, too. Those are fun photos.

  4. I like the way you showed the pix in b&w AND color. But, I have to say, I have always preferred black&white shots! I really like the contrasts you get with them.

  5. The color is so bright and lifts the spirits. But I like the b/w because I'm not distracted by the color. I can see things I miss in the color shots. B/w photos make me think...color photos make me feel.

  6. Mimi - I have so missed coming by your blog these past couple of days! I prefer the color ones, too! You come from one of the most colorfully landscaped countries. You have color all about. Thanks for your kind words and stopping by my blog. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Oh, yes. Colour for me a lot of the time too!

    Hope you are having a lovely week!

  8. I love Lisa's blog! It's fun to compare the B&W against the color, no? :)

  9. Give me color any day! Thanks for the good in my Southern California city we missed the huge power was south of us. It was quite an event however, for those who lost electricity.

  10. Hi Mimi - I stopped by again to tell you that I have a blog award for you on my blog!

  11. Cannot imagine what live would be like without colour - I'd have to change my name to Eddie Blacklights and learn to bark LOL
