Thank you once more to Gypsy Woman for nominating me for the Black & White Challenge. It has been fun and got me looking back through some of my photos and stirring some great memories.
I started with boats so I thought it apt to finish with them too. I am actually cheating somewhat as I will be posting two photos taken moments apart when I visited Dubrovnik in October 2007.
The first shows two cruise ships leaving the Jewel of the Adriatic. I have to say that it was more good riddance than bon voyage to see them go, as their arrival coincided with unbearable crowds in the stunningly picturesque Old Town. If you look closely, you will see the lighthouse helping them to steer clear of the rocks.
The second shows a small boat doing its best to stay close to the rocky shore and away from the huge wake left by the ocean going giants.
The visit to Croatia was part of a tour I arranged with my travel buddy Hamish around Albania and The Former Yugoslavia. You will be able read about this memorable trip and many others around Eastern Europe in my forthcoming book.
There are only two rules for this challenge:
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.
Today I would like to nominate Jo of a blog called restlessjo to join in. Of course this is only if you have the time and want to.
Jo has some great articles on her blog and some wonderful photos too.
