For this CB&W Challenge, I thought my recent trip to the Roman Theater in Cartagena was appropriate. The recent dig has uncovered a beautiful theater with many seats interspersed with steps to climb up or down to the appropriate level. Be careful! No handrails!
This is an absolutely must-see stop if you visit this beautiful city on the Mediterranean.

I decided that sepia was better than B&W for these marvelous wine casks in a cellar at Château Desmirail in the Medoc region of Bordeaux.
We bought a bottle of the 2009 Margaux wine and brought it back to our cruise ship to have with dinner. It went perfectly with the Beef Stroganoff.
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is always a fun exercise in selecting just the right photo to match the theme. The casks certainly fit ‘Circles and Curves’.

This week I have been featuring Puerto Rico in most of my posts. Sooo, Puerto Rico starts with a ‘P’ and ends with an ‘O’. How appropriate. Here are three black and white shots from that wonderful island.
Here is the fort in Old San Juan:
Next we have a window that is definitely shaped like an ‘O’:
And finally, we have a beautiful parrot:

This is a challenge to take a color photograph and change it to Black and White in post processing. Since Paula used a photo of a bridge in this challenge at her ‘Lost In Translation‘ blog, I thought I would do the same. Here is a bridge from Scotland in black and white:
Here is the original in some pretty dramatic colors of sunset:
Here is my first entry into the Black & White Sunday challenge sponsored by the Lost in Translation blog. I have two photos from Ketchikan, Alaska. The first is a seascape and the second is picture looking down into the waters of this beautiful bay.
Here is the southwest facing wall in our living room back before we bought our house in 2008. Hopefully you can see why we fell in love with these windows.
