The subject for this assignment was “Black and white photography”, – a challenge for a color-consumer like me. On the other hand; between white and black are the gray scale with all its tones that let us “read” any shape, just by looking at it. I have been searching my house for subjects to illustrate this, and here is the result. For the 24th time, thank you to Scott Thomas who spend time making these photo get togethers. I will look forward to the grand 25th assignment.
