Colourful Fridays

I had a few ideas for black and white this round.
Do I take a picture of our black horse and a white cow ... don't think the cow will co-operate.
The tyre on the tractor is black with a white rim ... too hot to walk up there.
Then I thought of a zebra but I've only ever seen those on tv or in books.
Magpies! ... Lots around at the moment but everytime I walked out with my camera, they flew away. My memories of magpies are riding my bike with an ice cream bucket for a hat as protection from the swooping mother magpie. Once the babies left the nest, they would happily make friends with you hoping for scraps.
On Monday afternoon the storm clouds gathered ... with the intense heat over the last few days it was inevitable! Mother Nature provided some black and white. (The black shadow top left must be a bug on my lense ... only UFO's here are in my sewing room)

Enjoy your black and white Friday. :o)


  1. Hi Narelle,
    A stunning picture...

  2. Love your picture. Yes, wasn't Monday the worst! Stayed inside all day - except for school runs, of course. Even had the air con running - have tried not to do that this summer!!

    I have memories of magpies - they were in the trees between our flat and the uni in my first year. They can be terrifying.

    Have a good weekend.

  3. Happy black and white Friday! Nice shot! :)

  4. This is a great choice for a photo for black and white! I can't understand why there is no zebra out in your paddock. Maybe the maggies frightened it off.

  5. What a perfect photo for our colorful friday this time.
    Beautiful Narelle :-) Stunning!!
    I remember the maggies doing that to us too and riding or walking with icecream containers on our heads... hee hee.
    Happy Colourful Friday!! xx
