The Weekend in Black and White


Snails.

We have so many of them at the moment. They don't even bother to hide!
These two were having a rest on the stone dragon in my garden.

I love the patterns on their shells.

Find many more black and white photos through the Home Page.

It is not good when there are so many of them. But they made a great shot. :)

Your eye (actually your dragon) doesn't miss much. So often we miss the small things. I like this one.

Dragon clarification. I think of my inner creative aspect as my dragon. My creativity takes a leap whenever I let him come out to play.

Oh, what a treat to discover these snails with their intricate shell designs. I have never been so lucky. Love the shot, and the textures are fascinating. It almost looks to me like there are parts of the design that are raised above the others. Thanks for the king comments about my series on Eloise at the beach. She is my ONLY granddaughter and my perfect model. Sometimes she is cooperative, but at others she can be such a pain in the neck....but that is part of the charm of a sic year old. Lovely photography this week as always. genie

Candace said...

This is a fantastic photo! I love how the black and white shows the patterns of the shells so well. I would frame this one for sure.

Jenny said...

Those are beautiful!

Cildemer said...

Lovely shot!
Have lots of them in my garden too and they are famished critters! So often I pick them up and take them to a field which is 200 meters from my garden! Hope they stay there too. He he he;o)

They can wreak havoc on your garden, but I do find them sort of cute. :)
This couple looks really nice in B&W.

This picture is just amazing! All your photos are really, but the patterns on this one stand out so beautifully. (Plus I like the creepy little things).
