This week, Cee is looking for flowing water for her Black & White Photo Challenge. A couple of months ago we took a trip to Minnesota to visit, among other places, Minnehaha Falls. It was a very dull, wet day when we were there so we probably didn’t see them at their best. I think, in this instance, the black/white treatment does them and the resulting flow of water more justice than the original color shots.
Closer to home, here are a couple of images from my visit to the Air & Water Show in downtown Chicago. Walking back from the lakefront, I took in Buckingham Fountain and a slightly less well-known fountain outside the Chicago Art Institute.

Well captured the flowing waters, Sue!
Thanks, Indira! We almost missed seeing the Falls. When we got there it was raining and thundering and I was reluctant to get out of the car, but my husband was determined to see the sights so off we went. Luckily the rain stopped soon after, so I’m glad he insisted on taking a chance.
As always wonderful photos for the flowing water challenge. 😀 😀
Thanks, Cee! This challenge gave me the chance to experiment with the shots from Minnehaha Falls which I had originally thought rather disappointing. The black/white certainly helped to bring out the detail.
I can hear the splashing from here! Great photos.
Beautifully done. The black and white looks great.
Thank you, Roger! I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the improvement the b/w treatment seemed to make to the picture of the Falls.
Well captured the different waters!
Thank you, Ann-Christine!
Nice selection 🙂
Thank you, Martin!
WOW! Gorgeous shots!❤️
Thank you so much!
