This week, Cee is looking for fences and gates for her Black & White Photo Challenge. I captured these images at the Volkening Heritage Farm, Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg last year. I haven’t had an opportunity to visit so far in 2020 and for now the facility is closed because of the virus. I will be sorry to miss seeing all the wonderful sights that nature has to offer there this spring but hope to return in the summer.
Reflecting on the subject for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week I found a few images from the Chicago Botanic Garden that I thought would fit the bill.

Even without their color, these flowers look pretty amazing! Isn’t nature wonderful! Images captured here in our garden and at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

This week, Cee is looking for something or someone older than 50 years for her Black and White Photo Challenge. How about 50 million years old! This fossilized fish, swimming in a sea of stone is from the Eocene period and can be seen at the Lizzadro Museum in Elmhurst.

The topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is anything farm related. I have some happy childhood memories of staying at a farm during one summer holiday and, although I don’t think I’d fancy living a farm life, I still enjoy visiting them either locally or when we’re away on one of our trips. These pictures were taken at Kline Creek Farm, run by the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, in West Chicago. This living history farm is open year-round with free admission.
