Mustavalkomaanantai: Kohtaaminen | B&W Monday: Meeting

A penny for a thought?

B&W Monday's challenge is entitled kohtaaminen, a meeting. This one lasted only a few moments but the memory of it stays much longer. I felt privileged.

Amterdam X (for taste II)


Amsterdam IX

Valokuvatorstai: Kummitustalo | Photo Thursday: Haunted house

Although not exactly a haunted house (or how do I know...) I somehow get an eerie feeling. See other halloween-ish contributions here.

Makroviikot: Lämmin | Weekly Macro: Warm

Warm is the theme for this week's macro challenge. I snapped a photo of something that gets my body, heart and soul feel warm. Besides being a sweater made from 100 % lamb's wool and therefore nice to wear, it has a special history. My then-boyfriend now-husband gave it to me on our first christmas together. Those days I lived in quite a chilly flat in Manchester - he sure got it right, thoughtful as he is. Still wearing it after 14 years. It's almost like new, 'though sometimes covered with my hair and cat hair here and there.

Mustavalkomaanantai: Vapaavalintainen | B&W Monday: A free pick

B&W Monday gives free hands letting us to choose whatever image and subject matter. I picked up this one from a recent trip to Amsterdam. The flower bulbs get surprisingly nice, almost graphical texture in black and white.

Which one of these would you choose?

Amsterdam VI (for colours)

Amsterdam V (for taste)
