This week, Cee has chosen Black & White as the colors for her Fun Foto Challenge. These days it’s relatively easy to convert images to black & white provided you have the right picture. Finding pictures of things that are primarily black & white without doing any kind of manipulation was rather more difficult but here are some random shots that seemed to fit the bill. I took several pictures of the young man playing the xylophone but although this one wasn’t necessarily the best, I chose it because I noticed that the woman crossing the street behind him was also wearing a black & white shirt.

This week, Ann-Christine has chosen ‘windows‘ as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and, looking through some recent photo files, I found two window pictures that I took at the George Clayson House in Palatine last week and one taken in downtown Wausau in Wisconsin, that I thought would fit the bill.

This week, the color is red, for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, so I thought I’d share two of the pictures that I took while I was in Minnesota recently. The first was captured at the Cathedral of Saint Paul and the second in the State Capitol Building.

Today, for Becky’s ‘In the Pink’ September Square, I thought I’d share this image, captured in Chicago while I was down there for the Air & Water Show. As soon as I saw it, I thought of this photo challenge.

The topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is Glass so I thought I’d share a few more images from our recent trip to Minnesota. I must say, these various photo challenges on WordPress have got me looking at things in a whole different light.
Pictures taken at Como Zoo & Conservatory, State Capitol Building and Cathedral of Saint Paul.

Especially for Norm’s Thursday Doors, here are just a few of the entrances that I have come across during my travels so far this year. We can never be certain where our path through life will lead us. For some it’s all a matter of faith. I prefer to think of it as fate.
Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago.
St. Peter’s Catholic Church on Madison Street in Chicago
Cathedral of Saint Paul in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Bartlett, Illinois.

This week, Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge calls for fountains. There are plenty of these in the photo files but here are just three, captured at the Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis and a park in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
