Black And White Photography, Laurie, Photography


The leaves continue to fall, and then to whirl around my carport, never idle.  Meanwhile, my much loved bike has not moved in over a week.  My camera too, has not seen much action.

How does life get in the way of things that we love?

Each morning I walk by and feel regret … but also hope … soon I will feel the wind in my face and the camera in my hand.

  1. Life does indeed get in the way but wow, by the time you do get back on your bike just imagine how much better that wind on your face is going to feel, or how I rationalise these things . . . A beautiful shot Laurie with a wonderful perspective, in so many ways!


  2. Wonderful atmosphere in this photo Laurie! You are so right life tends to get in the way of things that we love. Sometimes it is easy to keep things in balance, at other times not so easy. I hope you’ll get a chance to go out shooting and riding again soon! 🙂


  3. I can so relate to your words! Life gets in the way of the things we love to do. I look forward to the weekends so much! It gets dark so early here in the UK at the moment it seems there’s hardly any day! Lovely image!


    1. I’m so glad you understand, but I’m sorry too … meaning that I wish we all had more time each day to do the things that make us sigh with happy 🙂 so glad you visited!


  4. Oh, Laurie, how I can relate. So much I want to do; so much of my time spent on other necessary tasks. Love your words – a perfect marriage with your wonderful image. Here’s to finding the time to enjoy our passions!


    1. Yes! I hope we both keep finding those moments of pleasure amidst the necessary stuff, which aren’t negatives, just not the things that make us sigh with happiness! Thanks for getting it, Stacy!

  5. Beautiful shot Laurie 🙂 I am so used to posting these kind of photos in color I forgot how beautiful they look in black and white. Great job 🙂
