The Weekend in Black and White

Another Reflection

At the moment I'm more or less confined to the house with sciatica, and the pain meds send me to sleep for much of the day.
That means I have to look around for something that might be just good enough for the Challenge.

This small mirror stands on the shelf by my computer. In front of it is a brass stamp box which now holds paper clips etc. and in front of that is a shawl pin made by First Daughter for Second Daughter.
The whole thing caught my eye as I staggered past, and gave me a great excuse to sit down!


Look on the Home Page for many excellent black and white photos.

I'm so sorry you are dealing with so much pain. I know how difficult that can be. I hope it will get better soon.

I love the overall affect of the grouping in your photograph.

I gooled the illness you have and it seem to very hard. I hope it will end soon.

But you got a godo shot for this week, I really like it. :)

Hang in there. I can certainly relate to what you are going through. I had terrible sciatica 10 years ago which turned out to the the result of a herniated L5 requiring surgery. Plus, I live with chronic back pain and spasms from scoliosis. None of the meds do any good so I do not take them. Take it easy, and I hope it gets better sooner than later. I love the way you made some wonderful lemonade out of the lemons you are dealt this week. The shot is great. Where there is a will, there is a way. YOu have proved it to us this week. genie

It just shows you what is around if only you have the eyes to see.

Wishing you a very speedy recovery. My husband suffers from back pain and sciatica so I know how it can drag you down.

Sorry to hear about your troubles, and I hope the pain will subside soon.

A great b&w shot, turning what's around you into poetry.

The mirror frames the collection perfectly - I am often amazed how a chance glimpse of an image works out so well!

Hope you will get better very soon.

I thought this a very clever composition; made me do a double-take because I know beads cannot hang upside-down. LOL - very nice clear image, of course. Lovely B/W. Thank you, kareninkenai (weekend in b/w)
