Black and White Wednesday, Wordful Wednesday
















This picture is from last summer when we visited Oslo, Norway.
 I love it in black and white but also in color.
















Today is one of those days where you just want to sail away.....



Join Lisa over at The long road to China and Angie over a 7 Clown Circus for amazing pictures.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

I'll sail away with you :) FANTASTIC picture- can't decide which version I like better!

A beautiful photo in both bw and color. Sailing away on a lazy day sounds good to me. Do you have room for one more? xo

Joyce said...

Really beautiful photo...I love it both ways.

Dita said...

I was so enchanted with Norway when I visited there more than 20 years ago...a place I will definitely return to.

This picture is beautiful...makes me wonder who will be sailing away in those Viking boats!

Thank you for stopping over to visit my blog.

Oh yes, sailing away sounds perfect. Me too - I like both but the blk and wh could almost be at sunset which changes the mood a bit.

Lovely!

My Heart said...

Definitely love the black and white shot. Bt I am pretty sure I equally love the color one - especially in the midst of the white winter dulldrums! Beautiful shot regardless.

Matty said...

Sometimes the B&W is nicer, but in this comparison, I like the color better. Very pretty.

lfg said...

Great pic! I'm so glad you have the opportunity to visit all of those wonderful places.

Shawna&Co. said...

The first thing I thought when seeing this picture is how much I'd like to be in one sailing in the water.
Great photos!

Life Laugh Latte said...

I'm usually a b&w girl, but the color stole my heart. Can't beat the vivid green against the water. Wishing you warmth:) Holly

Shady Lady said...

I've been to Norway, too! Except it was the Norway in Epcot at Disney World. I'm guessing it's not quite the same. ;)

Love Letters To China said...

What a great picture! I so wish I could say I've been to Norway. Only in my dreams. Would love to so the Fjords one day.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Gorgeous shot! I like it in both colour and bnw. I could float away today too....our closest lake is still frozen solid though. dreaming of spring.

SamiJoe said...

brooke lynn said...

Lisa said...

Thanks for giving us this whimsical taste of such a pretty land!

They are amazing in both treatments!

The Sanders Family said...

I love this photo! It's so cool how the canoes look like hearts. It's like two hearts floating in the water :) Great capture!

Elouise82 said...

Mama Zen said...

I love the green on the inside of that boat. How cute!

Shelly and Family said...

OK Now I am really jealous too! Norway...the closest I ever got to Norway was at Disney's Epcot lol! But someday, I too will get there...

The photo is truly eye-catching and I must say...I am loving the B&W verison...

Hope you are having a great week...can't wai to see "where" I mena what B&W photo you will be posting next week....

Gail said...

Oh I would truly love to sail away....beautiful black and white. Love them both, don't have a favorite. :)

I love the white contrast of the boat on the left with the dark water and dock. Very cool.

Shelle said...

Growing Up A Country Girl said...

Great pictures - I like the b & w but then the color is wonderful too - I love how you can have it both ways!

Cop Mama said...

Ha ha! Yes, I would love to sail away right about now!

Love both, but the color is my favorite!

Kim said...

Beautiful in b & w but sooo inviting in color!

Lucy said...

oh my, this is a gorgeous shot. i love that green color on the one boat, it just screams out at me! the black and white is also very cool. I would want to frame this one. :)

Briana's Mom said...

I love the photo both ways!

Oh I wish I could sail away! It has already been a long week and it is only Wednesday!

Suzy said...

They both look great in your blog. It's so amazing that today's cameras let you do b x w and sepia etc. MIND BLOWING! Those b x w ones on my recents posts make me realize how far we've come in photography. OR that I knew really shitty photographers!

Traci said...

Isn't it amazing how the same picture can look so different? I love them both in such different ways.

Gorgeous.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Isn't it interesting how the black & white photo has a completely different vibe then the color photo. Both are terrific.

Hope your day sails by just the way you want it to.

I love those pictures...... each has a quality of its own. They are both stunning but there is a special quality in black and white photos, maybe because we are not so used to seeing them.

Nuts in May
