    Superb image.
    You are very welcome to the theme, Mono Weekly can only benefit when shots like this appear.

    You a Polaroid lover too?

  3. Julie: Thanks for stopping by. Your photo today was really good.
    Aileni: Thank you. I do like stopping by Monochrome Weekly. I finally thought it was time to contribute. As far as the Polaroid pictured to the right, it's there more for humor than anything else. My parents did own one many years ago though. It was fun to use.

  4. I like it> that is what my day looked like and without monochrome. Gray skies all day. MB

    sunset in black and white is quite appealing.

  8. Thanks everyone for your comments. When I used to shoot film I did a lot more black and white. I do really enjoy it.

    I love those grasses. They look nice against the gray with subtle shading.
