Looking for meanings in words, images and sounds
What a lovely piece of architecture…
Pingback: Black and white Sunday | Artifacts and Fictions
Hi Paula. Here’s my contribution – http://artifactsandfictions.wordpress.com/2014/06/15/black-and-white-sunday-2/ – once again I forgot to use your widget – sorry. I’ll try hard to remember it next time.
Moody lily pictures, Suzanne. I like them a lot. Thank you.
Oh Paula ! – I do like being given a theme. Now what shall I do …? [thinks …]
😀 you can use “time” – a number of interpretations 🙂
Very well – I shall ! So tell me; do you find you get a better response if you DON’T provide the theme …?
Hello M-R. It is a matter of personal preference of course. I have noticed that some people like to use my theme within their own interpretations for both events B&W Sunday and Thursday’s Special. On both occasions I told them they are not obligated to stick with the theme – I like people to come up with their own ideas, but is is also fun to see how they can interpret my theme. As a translator I enjoy seeing various interpretations. For example, once there was a theme on Weekly Photo Challenge: “create” and I posted a photo of a pigeon pooping on my balcony, right in the middle of the act. It is fun seeing how far some interpretations can go. Equally, if people don’t have anything “within the theme” I like them to post something that means something to them, something they find special.
Fairy nuff ! – thank-you, Paula ! I wish I’d seen the pooping pigeons. [grin]
The trouble with coming across blogs one likes is that one simply doesn’t have the time to wander back through them, eh ? – one simply proceeds from there “going forward”, as the money men like to say …
Of course. I have to note one thing though. When one links a post to some event it is customary to actually link it to them. I did not mind that had been previously published, but I only saw it as a contribution to WPC, and not to this B&W Sunday. Other challenges insist that posts should be completely new though.
Oh! – I am so SORRY … I had no intention of that photo’s being my contribution, Paula !!! I meant only to show you that I have already posted a photo under the heading ‘reflections’, that’s all. Please feel free to delete it as an entry for your project: I’ve just come up with a good one and am about to set it up as a contribution …
Oh, sorry for misunderstanding 😀 I am waiting for the fresh one 🙂
It’s permissible to repeat themes too :). I have noticed that theme “reflection” is widely used in photo challenges 😉
So shame on WordPress for being unoriginal. 😉
But reflection is the best theme there is – photography allows a zillion ways to catch reflections, and the word itself can be interpreted beautifully as you did with that gorgeous portrait of your man 🙂
It is, isn’t it ? I didn’t take it: it was a movie he was working on that I wasn’t, and some brilliant person with his/her own camera took that shot. The thing about Chic was that everybody loved him, so it wasn’t a bit surprising that there was a person ready and happy to take a shot of him. 🙂
Whoever took it did a beautiful job. He had a noble face.
Thank you, Paula … thank you.
This is a link to my pigeon if you want to see it 😀
You can use “time” as time to reflect.. Does it help?
So will you remove the link you’ve shown to this one and replace it with the one I actually meant for this project, please, Paula ?
Oh, sorry M-R I kept it because I like that picture a lot, but if you insist I will remove it now…
Insistence only on account of its not having been posted specifically for YOU, Paula ! 🙂
🙂 kind of you M-R. Would you like heads up on the Sunday’s theme?
Yup – much appreciated !!!
🙂 “together” 🙂
FAR OUT !!!
I think I’ll be able to manage that one. But as I shall be absent during the time, I’ll schedule it. Thanks so much for letting me know, Paula !!!
Any time dear M-R. Also, I would like to invite you and others to suggest themes for B&W Sunday 🙂
Hokay !!! – I can do that too. 😀

Lovely building Paula. Here is my contribution for this week: http://travelwithintent.com/2014/06/13/vesuvius-black-white/
Thanks Debbie. I love Vesuvius and your photo with Pompeii in the foreground gives it more context. Well done!
I tuoi B&W sono diversi da tutti gli altri…!
Bella anche la musica , oggi sono riuscita a sentirla……
🙂 Buona domenica cara. Grazie xx
Nice details and an Interesting looking building Paula. Is this in your home town?
Yes, it is. I forgot to tag it “Zagreb”. It is close to my work 🙂
Thanks. Town Hall?
No, just a simple residential house 😀
Paula, beautiful building. I put some photos up today with your widget, hope that’s enough….? Love the idea of a black and white Sunday.
Thank you again dear Barbara 🙂

Love this photo Paula. The back & white seems to bring out the details of the building.
This is what I wish to share with you this week: http://collinesblog.wordpress.com/2014/06/15/kindergarten-writing/
Thank you for sharing the highlights of your work with me 🙂
Lovely photo Paula, where was it? Here’s one just for you ! http://wp.me/a2dwKf-1up
In my home town, Zagreb 🙂
What an exotic name ” Zagreb” Scrambling for google maps!!
This is a heart-warming entry for me, Kathryn. Thank you xx
You are welcome as ever, sorry I do not have more time to play!
I really enjoy seeing how so many have gotten involved with this series.
People know what’s good for them 😀
Pingback: Black & White Sunday: Time | MARGARET-ROSE STRINGER
Time, indeed ! – and a time when we were shooting film rather than digital. My composition wasn’t the best, but still … 🙂
I don’t see anything wrong with your composition. I am also nostalgic about 1980’s 🙂 I like seeing your photos and recorded memories. Thank you so much for taking trouble to dig up the photo and prepare the post. You are a real sport M-R 🙂

Pingback: Black & White Sunday- Half Dome | Photos by Emilio
I love older architecture as opposed to the cookie cutter boxes of today. And in black & white they seem to look even better. This image is great! Here’s mine: http://emiliopasquale.wordpress.com/2014/06/15/black-white-sunday-half-dome/
Breathtaking sight and a wonderful photo, Emilio. Thank you 🙂
Sorry, Paula, that comment above (“Hah, I wouldn’t dare attempt it!”) was my error. Please disregard or remove it.
No worries Emilio 🙂
What a lovely place to hide and enjoy the view from that dome, a wonderful perspective Paula!
beautifully framed shot Paula. Love it.
It’s so distracting, reading comments, isn’t it, Paula? I keep being diverted elsewhere! Must visit Kathryn next 🙂
A residential house it may well be, but simple it isn’t! It makes a fine shot 🙂 And good music of course. Hands still sore? Music still blaring? Sympathetic hugs.
Thank you, Jo. The hands are bad cause I worked 10 hours today. The music is horrible…waiting for it to stop to catch.a few hours of sleep :S
Looks super in B&W!
Looks like monochrome time is around 9:37 am… 😉
I see on the clock in the photo that monochrome time is around 09:35 😀
And I just noticed that someone already wrote almost the exact same comment as I did…
It was kind of obvious 😀
Pingback: du temps perdu | Elizabeth Krall Photos
Hi Paula, My take on “monochrome time” is time in black and white: some photos to illustrate various sayings or quotations about time. Thanks for the nudge to get me thinking about this. I had to do a mad dash to the botanic gardens at lunch today to shoot the only sundial I could remember seeing in Sydney — and, thankfully, the sun was out. 🙂
Wonderful work, Elizabeth 🙂
Thanks! I appreciate the opportunity to share the photos.
