Monochrome Monday #5




Another shot of my collections. My husband collects driftwood from every vacation. Some are small and some are so large that we have to arrange our luggage to get everything to fit. These are just a few pieces that are in the house, but by no means all of them. To see other Mono shots, go here.

B&W enhances the wooden texture, its line, its softness, I guess.

A habit I appreciate - I collect stones.
A very nice picture.

I love driftwood. This shot really captures it worn-down smoothness and texture well.

Driftwood always looks good in mono, I tend to collect it too.

I like the idea of collecting driftwoood as it's not taking anything an area might miss. It makes for a great mono too.

Take what you can find and make the best out of it - as here.

Driftwood fascinates me. It seems that a chunk of tree that you'd never notice develops a whole new character after it's bobbed around in the water being wet sanded for a few years.

Great shot.

Such lovely structures - very mellow with the light background.

Beauty in ordinary driftwood. Good mono! I understand why your husband likes to collect them.
