Black and White

  I love how just in editing a photo into Black and White you can totally change it's look, and somehow they seem all that more professional. Some of my favourite photos to give the black and white effect to are those from my favourite city of New York. We are so used to iconic black and white images of this city that it just feels so right to edit them in this way. I think it also adds to that nostalgic feel and makes them all the more timeless...

 And then there's the very different looks it gives to my two favourite subjects;

Hubby goes retro:

Daughter looks dreamy:

Not forgetting the original theme to my first Black and White post, which as far as I can tell from my very limited understanding of my stats is the post most found from search engines;

The Black and White Cat:

This post is for week 70 of The Gallery, for the theme 'Black and White'. Head on over to see all the other entries this week!


  1. Love New York - these are lovely photos, there is something so timeless about black and white - I agree.

  2. Fantastic shots. I heart NY too and the black & white really adds to the pics!

  3. I've never been to New York but it's the one place I am aching to go! I suspect the hubby thinks I'm a bit mad, after all - there are much greener places to go and many beaches but every time I see a picture of New York, and yours are no exception, my heart jumps!
    Great post :)

  4. Soooo jealous !! I would love to visit New York and your photos make it look amazing! The other photos are lovely too and I have to admit it took me a few seconds to recognise your cat in it's photo! Doh!
