      The Crossroad with which Lisa ended the former Volume couldn’t lead elsewhere than to Volume XVII of our beloved Black and White Thread. Ruth and Lisa joined the B&W addicts and I love your posts. There is one post  by Keelin in the former Volume that has to be checked before diving into this Volume: Mood / Doom. This duo-picture shows fine lines in the sky that fit perfectly with the fine lines of the tree. Great contrast. Love it.

      A warm welcome to you, Ying! That is a remarkable scene you’re captured. I can’t imagine that ominous cloud be any closer to the ground. Did you manage to stay dry?

      And a warm welcome back to you, Gregory! So nice to have you posting here again and to the other topics as well. Grey Swirls is a lovely reintroduction to your photographic eye.

      Nice minimalist approach in your #701, Michael. In a funny way, it reminds me California Cuisine. Love the cloud cube in #702 and the whole structure of that image. It is a favorite.

      What does a minimalist approach say about Californian Cuisine Keelin? Is there any horseshoe on the menu?

      The menu in this thread is Burgundian and even fed by new members Ying and the returned Gregory. Let the Final Flinging not be the final and continue.

      Hans, your Glimpse is deliciously mysterious. Although I’ve not seen horseshoe on a California menu, I wouldn’t be surprised to find a single green bean plated at some overly fancy restaurants. And yes, let us continue with this feast of B&W images. I doubt we shall ever be sated. Here’s a dash of this and a pinch of that to toss in.

      An Old Family Recipe with a bit of this and that by Keelin and then lunchtime by Gegory. There is so much good food for the mind in this thread. Michael you succeeded to amaze me once more with your last three. Don’t know which one of them amazes me more. Maybe it is #705, for it seems to be painted with firm brushstrokes. Great art! Love it.

      I concur with Don, what could possibly be better than cow fog? As for Michael, for some reason, I really enjoy #707 a lot. I think it may be because of the crisp outlines of the Cumulus. Thank you for sharing everyone!

      Thanks, Michael, for your compliment on the Bundle further above. Your #709 reminds me of the dramatic skies of Colorado. Powerful palettes with all shades ‘tween black and white. You capture them so well.

      Ruth, your Cow Fog photo is hilarious. LOVE IT! We have that kind of “oreo” cow here in Napa also, but usually sans fog. The mistiness seems to suit it well.

      And Gregory, I like the white bird contour in your Sunlit Cloudscapes.

      Great variety in the latest three above. Hard to believe the sky can feature such diverse cloud compositions.

      And wow, Hans, what a photo! Rippledness is extraordinary. Do I hear a rush of water melodiously burbling its way down those furrowed steps?

      Thanks, Michael! I must say, your #712 looks delicious! In #713, it appears the clouds are being pushed to the right by a very determined wind. Nice tension in that one.

      Below, perhaps a bit too much tension…

      A Glimpse is quite a tease, Hans. I’d like to go there and explore that mysterious landscape. I’m also drawn to your Flames and to Michael’s #715 as well.

      The photo below immediately begged its title. And then I saw the pup and it somehow seemed an even better fit.

      Does it Still Itch is very funny and a great composition altogether Keelin. The more after I spotted the puppy also.

      Nice floating feeling in #717, Michael. And as usual, your fine touch with the grey scales is evident.

      Ruth, I’m amazed at the shapes of bright cloud above and water below being such a near match in It’s The Water—a lovely scene there.

      Hans, where did you go to take that shot of the moon?! Amazing!

      And back to ‘scales’ with Ruth’s most recent photo…

      And that Threesome of yours, Hans, looks to be heading somewhere as well. If they travel the shoreline, best keep at least one eye on the sea.
