Lots of colors in the flowers at this time of year, but the dominant color of spring is green. The green of new leaves emerging, but also of moss, catkins and some flowers. Here are a few spring greens from this morning’s walk for Cee’s Mid-week madness challenge: Spring Season.

Today’s Bloganuary prompt is “What is a road trip you would love to take? (I skipped yesterday’s because I have absolutely no clue what advice I’d give to my teenage self. Way too long ago.)
Driving trips are not my favorite thing
I am not a big fan of road trips. Things go by too fast.
I am better now about pulling over, but I still feel like I miss too much. For some reason, a mix of my personality and up-bringing make it hard for me to pull over easily. Driving takes too much of my attention to let me see things well and I don’t react fast enough to opportunity. I’m often well past before I decide I want to see something better.
But I digress…
There’s no place like home
There are many places to see and things to do in the world. I’ve been blessed to do, perhaps, more than my fair share. And there are more places I’d like to go, but my only recurring road trip ambition is to explore all the nooks and crannies of my home state: Washington.

2021 was a strange year. Not a bad year. In fact for me it was actually a very good year. Watching the news I feel a little guilty about that.Continue reading At the end of the year…
Some whites and silvers I found this week.
Yellow is not prevalent in February in Seattle. For HeyJude’s Life in Colour I did a scavenger hunt for yellow while walking the dogs this morning.
Hey Jude for Life in Colour this month chose brown as the theme and asked “what browns can you find in the world?”. I took these photos today thinking about that theme. Brown is a funny color, I often don’t see it. I tend to see things that many people see as brown as shades of red or orange. I think these are brown?
Also this is my entry for Lens Artists: Its a small world.
All of these were converted to black and white using Nik Silver Effects Pro.
Some photos from the past couple of weeks that have a strong contrast between light and dark.
While the contrast between light and dark is fundamental to black and white, I also find myself drawn to contrast in sharpness of detail and texture. You can see that in several of the photos above.
This week Hey Jude for Photo Challenge #46 asked for black and white focusing on contrast.
