Monochrome - Thematic Photography

On a trip to Cornwall in April I had the opportunity to take a number of shots at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. 

Two of these seem ideal for Carmi's monochrome challenge this week.

This tool shed looks much better when seen like this - 

Heligan gardening tools
A photo of a former ruined building really shows its age in monochrome when the wall on which it hangs is cropped off.

A restoration challenge.
I'm hoping that future thematic photographic challenges will enable me to show other shots from our visit to Heligan.

In the meantime check out other monochromatic links at Thematic-photographic-372.

Love the shigs of Heligan. What a great secret garden.

That really is going to be a challenge!
Very nice photo!
I'm here from Carmi's blog.

Those garden tools look really old. Or is it just that the monochrome makes them look old?

There's something about the monochrome that makes the fall-apart-ancient type of thing look so much more decrepit! Love those shots, and look forward to more of Heligan. its a place I'd like to go to, but never will now!

Unusual pictures. Don't know the area.

Wow, I imagine that was quite the learning experience. I think monochrome often allows for things to stand out more. But either way I always enjoy photographs no matter black and white or color! They're all wonderful!

Once upon a time, those tools were the bomb! The cutting edge, if you will.

P.S. Bob, I added a monochrome shot of Theda, Princess Wolfhound.

Danggit, I mean Amelia, Princess Wolfhound.

When people ask what breed Theda is, I tell them, "Pure-bred West Virginia dog."
