Black & White Sunday: Withered

My thought of the day: We live in a fragile ego-system.




If you want to join my Black and White Sunday, feel free to grab the widget bellow and post a photo (or several of them) for this or some other theme of your choice. Just make sure it is black & white and link it to this post.




These are this week’s contributions for Black and White Sunday:

Making the Most Of It

Withered by Ese

  1. Poor sad sunflower, well and truly withered! Can’t help thinking this is what I look like (and very often feel like!) after I wash my hair.

    • πŸ™‚ I can’t go back to check on it now because our botanical garden is closed, but I am afraid your prediction has come true. Thank you very much, Sue.


  3. Lovely, Paula. Often the withered phase has a beauty and delicacy that the robust phase lacks. Your shot also has an eeriness about it.

    I’m just back from photographing ribbons of bark and dead blady grass – amongst other things. But b & w is for another day!

    Have a relaxed and unwithered week – and a hug from the southern hemisphere.


  4. Fragile ego-system…what a brilliant way to put it, Paula! We do, indeed…sometimes tip-toeing, other – just running straight through, unable to stop. I do at least, unfortunately.
    Your photo reveals the beautiful details that are always vital but for one or another reason often unnoticed.
    I enjoyed the music (who is performing?), a lot! Funnily enough, listening to the first chords, I had the feeling “They Don’t Care About Us” was coming… πŸ™‚
    Here’ s what flashed in mind this time:


    • If it is any consolation, I don’t feel much hotter than this withered artichoke now. Horrible weekend over here – totally sick.


  5. Great choice for the theme! I love how you’ve used B&W tones to create the mood. It’d been a while since I ‘visited’ you Paula:)! Thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the photographs! Hope all is well with you πŸ™‚


    • It was easy since I came up with the “theme”. Nothing drastic happening over here (for now) Uday, but I have been feeling very faint and exhausted. Haven’t been out except for work for three weeks, can hardly do anything in the house either.


        • Not this week, and cutting down on visiting and commenting some blogs have helped I guess, but I am a bit worried now, since my weeks pass just with work, publishing photos (not taking new ones). This week I wasn’t able to study or to teach languages or to work on my other blog. I feel pretty useless….
