Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Steps: Indoors or Outdoors

Cartagena, Spain

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.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Circles and curves

Bordeaux, France

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’.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Hands, Feet, or Paws

This statue of a bear is located outside of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming. In full color, the bear is a wonderful orange, but the transition to black and white is also quite appealing:

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Letters O or P

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:

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Ground

When you want some pictures of interesting bare ground, the best place to go is Yellowstone National Park. The featured image is of the ‘Fountain Paint Pot’ were mud is king and hot steam is normal.

Nearby is a desolate landscape where life holds on by a slim thread:

Of course, moving around in this landscape required the National Park Service to build some elevated sidewalks:

You can even find rivers running through the landscape:
