Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Black & White

You would think as a fan of Ansel Adams I would have started with black & white along time ago but it was only a few years back when I took my first black & white photo that I became an enthusiast of monochrome. My daughter and I were driving the back roads near my city and I saw this view and thought it looked sad, of a place long ago. I took this black & white shot through the front window of the car. It’s only a simple countryside but it showed me the beauty of black & white.
