I have this old gnarled branch in my front garden, this close-up is a piece of the middle:

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Close Up

Cee - Closeup Black and WhiteNothing like coffee from a french press – I loved the steam which looked really interesting both in color and black and white.
I also captured Sparks after she had a drink out of the bathroom faucet, I loved the water droplets stuck to her fur and whiskers.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Churches

Rosslyn Chapel is one of the most interesting churches I’ve ever been in. Construction began in 1446 and services are still held there to this date. Photography inside was not allowed (so I bought the book of course) so this photo is from the exterior….the photos I took just don’t do it justice. It is a place to see in person; to wander the grounds and feel; to sit in and be still. You can feel the energy of centuries of people who sat there before you, it is amazing.
