Black and White Photography (Quote and Old Dog Photos)

Travel with Intent offers a weekly quotation to inspire bloggers. 

The quote this week is from Robert Frank:

“Black and white are the colors of photography, which symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”  

 

Linked to PULL UP A SEAT week – sit for the artist…

This next one is to join in with Profrifollies 4.10 (here) – “please don’t flush tissues, wipes, sanitary products, kittens & puppies, hopes and dreams… Thank you.”

And this month (so far) has brought many smiles with memories of our doggies – (RIP Steve and Cody)

So linking up with Trent’s Weekly Smile with some “throwback” dog photos.

 

Hope your week is going well. 

And Debbie from Travel with Intent says, “If the quote inspires a pictorial or wordy post from you, do feel free to link in” –

GO (here) to join in.

  1. Love that little cartoon at the end, Yvette. My question is if people are using wipes (and not just for cleaning up spills), how would you dispose of them without a real “ick” factor? Just saying. 🙂

    Happy mid-week to you.

    1. Hi – I agree that the ick factor is real – hahha
      and… there is always the trash bin

      and glad you mentioned that part (and I was actually going with the “not flushing hopes and dreams – or puppies..”)
      well….

      did you know that flushing down even the So CALLED “flushable wipes” can cause serious plumbing issues??

      “Wet wipes have caused problems for sewer systems around the world. A story in The New York Times said water and sewer officials spent $18 million dollars over five years on wet wipe-related sewer problems.”

      1. I did know that, but after all the “flushable” advertising, what do “they” expect? I wonder what happens even if you don’t flush them? At the very least, cut back on using them. I don’t like to think about putting them in the trash and then letting them sit there until garbage collection day, even in a closed container (talking bathroom wipes here.) Ewwwwwwww! And I know someone who’s doing that and has to empty the bathroom wastebasket every day and there goes a plastic bin liner with everything.

      2. Hi janet –
        May I suggest a bidet ….

        and actually I am surprised that you – Ms Nature and Mrs. forest bather – would flush these down the toilet – and hey – not judging here – but never expected to even talk wipes today –

        and on a different note – we had a health coach visiting us last March – Mike Bruce – cool dude – and I was listening in on a conversation and it was something about “one wipe bowel movements” and he was saying that it had to do with eating so clean (paleo lifestyle) and when the system was right – well BMs are not a huge mess – one wipe. Now this is not the time to expound on BMs- but I DO think that the “standard American carb and sugar diet” can wreak havoc on the system ((not saying that is you)) – but that can make people need to use wipes more – and I guess I sort of just thought they al those wipes were for babies and the elderly – but I guess for those who need to use them all the time – well maybe a BIDET would be the answer — because wipes are bad news for the plumping –
        mazon sells add-on Bidets for 30dollars – we installed one in our guest bathroom –

        “Bidets are an alternative to toilet paper, offering a fast and effective way to wash up after using the facilities. Available in standalone and integrated varieties, these fixtures are both environmentally and economically friendly.”

  2. I struggle with b/w photos, but was told that if I’d start “seeing” things in b/w it’d help, how can that be accomplished?? Makes me wanna flush my camera!

  3. That cartoon made me smile. And you’ve reminded me of a sign I saw in a public bathroom recently which — I’m sure — included clothing on the list of things not to flush. Cos don’t we all see a toilet and think “hey that’s a great place to get rid of this stained sweatshirt.”

    1. Hi – well there is plenty of time to possibly later convert some of your images to mono
      like that recent “lines” one might have a different vibe in black and white…
      either way – plenty of time – eh?
