Everyday life sprinkled with pictures and books.

Black&White Wednesday August 4, 2010

Ever since I first saw a black and white Wednesday post on Maddy’s blog I’ve been wanting to give it a shot. So away we go!

My family often makes trips to Manteca (my dad calls it “lardo” ) where my brother and my uncles live. The first time I took this trip I thought we would never get there. When we finally did arrive it was the middle of July and 102 degrees outside. Holy smokes, it was the worst trip ever! That was many many years ago. Now I enjoy the views the one hour (with traffic it can easily be close to two) trip offers.

Hooray for wind power! I didn’t know what these “big white spinning things” were at first.

The ever present sun I have (sort of) come to love. Ah sunny California.

Happy Wednesday! Check out The Long Road to China for more blogs featuring a Black and White Wednesday.

    Yay!!! I’m so happy you’re did a B&W Wednesday post 🙂 I automatically start thinking in B&W and trying to figure out what pictures would look awesome in B&W versus color! And btw – one hour is hardly a long trip! I commuted two hours to work (each way) for almost a year!!

  2. That’s kinda cool…It’s my first time too and I think I’m gonna enjoy it too.

    The wind power picture is so cool! You did a great job at taking black and white pictures. I can relate to your woes about the scorching weather. Texas gets its fair share of heat too!
