B&W Retrospective – 2014

This year has a Black & White Retrospective too. If you have missed the colour one go here. This one has a more exciting score I think. Happy New YearΒ Everybody!

  1. Fabulous…every single one of them (and music, of course…sounds so much like “Beethoven’s 5 Secrets”…love it)!
    I have really enjoyed to look at the world in B&W through your challenge, Paula, and to learn how many details appear when colours are “out of the way”. Thank you very much for hosting Black&White Sunday – I am looking forward the wonderful&original new ideas and inspiration also next year.
    Happy New 2015!

    • Thank you dear Ese πŸ™‚ It is a mix of Beethoven’s 5 Secrets by Piano Guys πŸ™‚ I am very grateful for all your entries this year, and I look forward to seeing more next year. I would love you to host one of my B&W Sundays as a guest blogger. There are already a bunch of guest challenges scheduled – when you have time you can check out “scheduled challenges” page. I am very interested to know what photographic theme you would chose. Have a great year ahead, Ese!!

      • My pleasure! πŸ™‚ Yes, it is such a wonderful mix and I would say – fits the moment very well! But then….you have always been spot on with choosing the music to go with your photos… πŸ˜‰
        I would be honoured, Paula, and it would be fun, too. I will have a look at “scheduled challenges” and…yes, will definitely see you next year!

  6. What a superb collection, Paula! It has drama and atmosphere and I so love the music. πŸ™‚ I checked early on and you hadn’t posted but here you are in all your glory! I think my favourite is Notre Dame but it’s not an easy choice. πŸ™‚
    I’ve been out all day (down the coast at Whitby) and am back to cosy up for the evening. (watching Fantastic Mr. Fox currently πŸ™‚ ) Do you have a plan or are you simply curling up exhausted? Whichever it is, I wish you a lovely evening and much joy in 2015. Bring on the fireworks! πŸ™‚

    • πŸ™‚ Thank you for the raving review Jo. I am looking forward to a quiet night at home which is our favourite way to welcome New Year. Whenever I can I avoid going out on this date – something inherited from my father. I will light a few spranklers and think of you. πŸ™‚ Enjoy your Christmas Eve, Jo. xx
