Black and White Sunday

At some moments, I wish that all of life were black and white, with no uncertainty built into it.
But then I realize that it's the uncertainty that makes life surprising and intriguing. None of knows what will happen tomorrow, and that is how it should be.
I wonder if life is more black and white for a mountain lion than for a person.
I still need to tell you the story of the mountain lion who returned to feed on the elk carcass that I'd staked out with a trail camera. I promise to do that this week.


  1. shyla is gorgeous even in b&w. :)

  2. Sometimes it would be nice for the world to be black and white. But like you, I prefer not knowing the end result. Shyla is a wonderful model for you!

  3. I do think mountain lions see the world more in black and white. No worries about politics, global warming, etc. Only basic survival.

  4. Black and white is nice, but life is so much more beautiful and interesting with color, despite the rough times and the uncertainties.

    Shyla is beautiful in these photos even without her gorgeous colored furs.

  5. I know I would like it if things were little more clear cut, but you're right, how interesting would that be, and what would we learn? I'll look forward to reading that story--Take care!!

  7. I'm sure those mountain animals see colour, and their life might not be all smooth sailing, looking for their food, shelter, safe from shooters and other animals, I guess the uncertainty keeps them and us all going through life with extra energy when needed.your B&W photos are lovely. Cheers, Jean.

  8. Great pictures as usual, but I like the colored ones even more. What camera do you use?

  9. Love Love those photos. I like a mix of Black and white and color.
