A Crafter's Life, Life in B&W, Outside Adventures!

Garden of the Gods in Black and White

This is sort of part 2 of the May 6th post Out of town guests? Put them to work!. We didn’t just make our friends visiting from Oregon work on home remodeling projects, we did actually take them sightseeing.

The weather was cold and a bit snowy during their visit but they really wanted to see the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado. According to Wikipedia, The Garden of the Gods is comprised of “red rock formations were created during a geological upheaval along a natural fault line millions of years ago”.

This was my second time there and very different from my first visit in August 2019 when we took my visiting sister and nephew there (see post And on the 8th Day…Part I). It was much sunnier and much warmer in August.

In honor of the difference between the warm August and cold/snowy early April visit, I took photos in Black & White instead of color.

Here is a photo journal of the day – enjoy (or cringe at my attempt to be a B&W photographer, ha!):

And yes, Mike the Miniature Schnauzer joined us in the backpack.

  1. Awesome photos. I love the black and white because I think it allows you to look at different things in the photos. These are truly wonderful.

  2. Having taking college classes in photography when only black & white was available for use in class, I have to smile when I see people de-coloring digital photos. That said, I find de-colored digital photos on my phone very helpful for choosing values among fabrics 🙂
