Focus on Life: Moments - Best Captured in Black & White

Form and Feeling take Center Stage

This week, our prompt from Sally Russick for April's Moments theme, was to find a moment best captured in black and white. 

I knew right away I wanted to catch the newly opened daffodils as they recovered from being covered in ice the night before. Kind of poignant to see them bowing down.

I liked how important the light becomes. 

I then chose a vase that has been kicking around in my garden...looking much older than its actual age. 

Abuse, not age!

And then this old galvanized bucket, just because it looks cool.

Nice geometric effect on the bottom. 

 Looking forward to what others have done.


  1. The bucket and vase are really interesting in black and white. There is so much detail.
    Daffodils are such hardy little flowers. Amazing what they can endure!

  2. I love the daffs, but that pot and pail just cry out to be captured in b&w - great photos!
    Happy Easter x

  3. Wonderful array of piccies. The monochrome adds so much interest to simple subjects.

  4. Really favor the bucket shots. It's amazing how black and white forces us to focus on shapes and textures.

  5. Such great photos for this week's prompt! I think I'm in love w/that vase!!

  6. Beautiful photos!! I'm cheering on those daffodils!!!

  7. Great photos. My favourite is the 2nd one of the vase - a perfect subject for a B&W image.
