All in a Day's Stroll, 104/365


The above photo is for Black & White Wednesdays and Weekend Reflections #69.  Our snow will most likely be gone by Friday and so I am enjoying it while it is here.  The photo below is for Partially Seen in January - it is part of some stonework on a water fountain.  I loved the contemporary feel of this.

...alas, no, it is not my house :( I like the contemporary feel - I'm going to search out more shots like this! Thank you.

Helen said...

Both photos - stellar!

Gorgeous! Loving the B&W! xo

Love the stone photo, I actually see a horse at the bottom and a cougar's head on the rocks above him. Just my way of seeing things. Can you see them?

Margaret Bednar said...

Helen, Patty Ann, Love and Life - Good old black & white. It can capture a mood beautifully at times...and I love color. I think all the vertical lines are showcased here better this way. Thanks!

Carol. I saw the horse first thing after you pointed it out. And now I see the crouched tiger! How fun.

What a wonderful winter scene Margaret, and I love the stonework shot! Should you run out of snow, just holler. 17 inches here overnight, and I am so very willing to share!

Allan said...

I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm doing a 365 project too and seeing others' projects inspires me. Great work.

Beautiful picture! I need to get outside more when it snows instead of hibernating...it's so beautiful when it snows, just really cold!

Margaret Bednar said...

Lisa, Allan, & Alicia - Thank you! The snow is rapidly disappearing. My tip for photographing in cold weather is to purchase gloves with mitten flap that leaves fingertips exposed = much easier to operate the camera. My hand was cold and numb taking photos the past few days.

Your B&W photos are beautiful.. I love the reflection off the water, And I can see why you love that second shot. What great texture it has..

Margaret Bednar said...

Thank you - your blog is quite amazing as well!

Sylvia K said...

Terrific B&W captures and such stunning reflections! I love it! And the second one does have marvelous texture and subtle colors! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!

Karen said...

Fantastic reflections and so nice in monochrome.

John McDevitt said...

The monochrome image feels cold. Nice job. I like the straight verticals of the bare trees.

Serendipity said...

That's a lovely reflection scene. I really like the light.

J Bar said...

Beautiful.

James said...

The bottom photo could make a nice texture and the top one is a beautiful scene.

Margaret Bednar said...

Sylvia, John, Serendipity, J Bar & James - Thank you. We live near many little lakes and I love how it reflects the seasons. The winter trees do give this a wonderful diagonal, John - I think that is what attracted me to it - not so much the reflection! Thanks, James for the opportunity to "play".

Regina said...

Wow classic and beautiful!
Happy weekend reflections.

Greyscale Territory said...

Very beautiful reflections in your quiet snowy world!

Margaret Bednar said...

Regina & Greyscale - Not snowy, really anymore. But I did enjoy the photo opportunity. Thank you.
