Images in Black and White

All of the following pictures were originally in color, but sometimes I think black and white is even more interesting.

I like the idea of using black and white photographs in decorating. To me, they provide an uncluttered less is more look, which I prefer.

This picture of our granddaughter Avery Grace has inspired me to convert more of my pictures of her to black and white, and perhaps put together a grouping of framed photographs of her.

Magnolias are always beautiful in black and white ...

If you have a photo editing program, you might enjoy converting some of your photographs to black and white. I think you will be surprised by the totally different look it gives them. Sepia tones are also nice.
