Black & White Photo Party

It's time again for Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures Photo Linky Party.  I am really enjoying playing along!  The theme for the week is black and white. Tracy encouraged everyone to shoot in color, later changing the photo to black and white in your photo editing.
Tracy mentioned looking for texture.  What better than bark on trees? :)
I wandered out to my back yard again, shooting some close ups of the trees. 
It's amazing to see all the texture that comes to life when you switch it to black and white.
 The picture above is of  a River Clump Birch tree.  I love the papery, peeling look of the bark.

I found this little pile of decaying plants. It has so many textures,
 from the leaf skeleton to the moss.  Very cool in black & white. 

I'm going to have to venture out of my yard for the next party. :) 
If you look hard enough ~ it's funny how you can find beauty in such simple things!

Thanks again Tracy!

I love that peeling bark. It's way cool. I think it was fun to see what you found in your yard. That might have to be a photo challenge for one of our parties sometime. Thanks for liking up!

All the texture is amazing! The bark looks like paper and the knot looks like an eye to me! I love that.
