Black and white photography forces the eye to see textures and contrast. It draws the viewer to the subject and my, what awesome subjects we have for this month’s special edition theme “Black and White.”  These are the stunning images that grabbed our eye for this month’s Special Edition celebrating black and white photography!!  Every month we send out an “open call” to all of the the photographers and momtogs and hobbiests in our community and ask them to share some of their photos of our monthly theme.  We got a great variety of black and white images from all over the world; it was difficult to choose our very favorites!! Comment below on which is your fave!
