Art in Black and White

Our theme is ART in Black and White. Now I didn't ask Stewart if that meant to take a picture of some art in black and white, or to create art with only black and white.

I know I have done several quilts in only black and white--well, except that I included a block of red and a strip of yellow--they really make the quilt spark.

I went looking through my photo archives looking for some great graphic images to render into black and white, and found these among others.


 Shadows and reflections are cool in black and white.





 Are these the same? No. The one above is in its natural color. The color has been removed below.

Color is not all there is in a sunset. There is light and silhouette.
 

The other Headbangers will be artistic in Black and White today. Their links are in my sidebar.

The dock and wagon wheel are my favorites. Very artistic indeed!

Great sequence of b&w shots! You get extra credit for both creating art and photographing it. Love the shadows and reflections you found.

I like the old wheel best i think.
