Black and White in the Barn

Jesus the Rooster, in striking black and white.

This week I'm having a "staycation" from work.  One of my goals is to do something creative every day.  I've been depleted from all the work busyness this summer and really need to replenish my creative self.

So this morning, rather than taking my regular barn photos, I switched to black and white.  See what you think!

Ulani was eager to see what was going on in the barn -- she kept her nose pressed right up to the door!

Barnard gave me her best side (or was she looking at her own shadow?!).

Now that it's really chilly overnight, I frequently find her basking in the early morning sun on her shelf.  I'm so glad I put it up for her, and I am thinking about adding a few more shelves so she can move around higher and lower.  Cats like that!

Peep's feet.  She turned four about a month ago.  I'm not sure what causes the bumpiness of her toes -- could it be chicken arthritis?  She doesn't seem to have any problem walking around, though, so I'm not too concerned about it.

The full photo of Jesus.  Come to think of it, I'm not certain this is Jesus.  Jesus may have been one of the victims of the barn terrorist in June.  This may just be "the white rooster".  Difficult to tell.

The back side of the barn.  It's a nice face that I don't often photograph.

Time to get some chores done.  More BSF creativity later!

Your back and whites are beautiful. I especially like the full Jesus and the back of the barn.

Really good pictures. Never thought about shooting B&W only.

I really liked the black and whites!
