Walden Pond

" deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Interesting sequencing. I was expecting the man on the right to push the other guy into the pond.

I was there in the fall of '06. Loved the place, even though I read a lot more about Thoreau later and (sort of) changed my mind about the point of his experiments with living in wilderness.

I guess your pix only reiterate the man's point...I'll pick the black and whites over the colour ones any day ;-)

If the world loves black-and-white pictures, and I do, just how on earth did color become the king?

//cave drawings are cooler than black-and-white.

I *deep breath* prefer color pictures, especially when it's random photo album kind. Black and white to is so arty, no? I feel pretentious just saying I like them.

And I rest my pretentious case.

and now, will someone add dialogue bubbles to these pictures? :)

and one more word about color vs. b&w - texture

Oh, B&W any day. I'm arty like that, what to do.

But I like the tilts you do in some of your photos, TM - like the first colour one in this post.

BM: Texture. Exactly. (And shadows and clouds.) Color is boring.

That's a pond?

I'll join in the chorus and add that I loved the B/W photos too, but the last blue was fantastic :)
