  1. Beautiful black and white (sepia) image!!! I love it! Thanks for playing!

    • Thanks Cee, I’m glad you like this one. The color version is one of my favorites. You mention sepia. Hmmm, on my devices (iPAD, Android, and my low-end Win 8 laptop) it doesn’t look at sepia. Maybe there’s a monitor calibration issue with my equipment. I didn’t look at it with my “good” system, the one I use for professional printing, though. Will be sure to do that next time around.

  2. Fabulous photo, Babsje. Five challenges in one post is very good going. 🙂

    • Thanks so much, I’m glad you like this one. My thinking about associating one post with more than one challenge is that it spares the reader from receiving to many posts from me. I could have done 5 different posts, a different photo for each challenge, but then maybe people would feel spammed by me? I dunno. Thanks again for taking the time to comment here! Best, Babsje

      • Yes, you do have a point, Babsje. There are so many challenges on the go. It’s really difficult to keep up.

        • I almost feel the need to write out a cheat sheet of what goes with which day, lol. Sonel has a good list that helps keep me organized but even then I find surprises along the way. If you hadn’t mentioned my blog in your CBBH post, I wouldn’t have even known about that one.

  3. Lovely picture Babsje 🙂

  4. And thanks to you for taking that wonderful shot! I would love to see the color version as well!

    • I’m so glad you like this one, thanks for your kind comment and for asking about the color version. I’ll post that one sometime, too. Best, Babjse
