Black and White Mosaic

I've put together a quick mix of black and whites for Mosaic Monday this morning.  I'm fairly certain I haven't previously published any of these images to my blog.  I really like all of them, and even though it may seem as though I favor the feather, it is actually a toss up between the curled up poinsettia leaf and the snow drifts, (which, by the way, are no taller than 2 inches).  Truth is, I love black and white photography.  Long before I ever owned a camera, I was drawn to it.  I love it even more now that I have Lightroom.  I can't tell you how much fun I have been having with that program.  

Thank you again Judith for hosting.  This is one of my favorite link party's to take part in.  

Do you have a favorite image out of these five?

  1. Hello Andrea
    I'm drawn to these images too. Black and white picks up the interesting detail - the graininess and texture - quite beautiful .

  5. Wonderful textures and forms and lighting! You have created a really beautiful B&W mosaic.
    I was going to decide my favourite one are the leaves and trees on the bottom right, but all the images are lovely.
    Have a great week ahead!

    B&W is hard to "do." This program must be wonderful...

  10. I like all the subjects you chose for your B/W collage Andrea. It would be interesting to hear more about your thoughts on LightRoom - I'm taking a free on-line introductory class from a photographer and will have to decide if I want to purchase this software.
    Do you have the stand alone or CC version that you have to pay for monthly?

  11. Your black and white images are just stunning and the collage you created is so unique nd quite beautiful! I love the texture of the dried leaf (top) in contrast with the softness of the feather. I'm visiting from Mosaic Monday :)

  18. These are lovely. I'm trying to do a little more B/W photography but I always seem to forget to change my settings.
    I think my favorite here is the snow in the top left corner.
