It's always been my opinion that black and white photography almost always manages to capture something more beautifully than colour photography, the very essence of the subject. Love that first image! Which reminds me, Wimbledon is almost here (even though it's not my favourite tennis tournament). You didn't think the tennis talk was over, did you?
Ada, you cracked me up. You're going to turn me into a tennis-playing jewellery person, aren't you? ;-) Love that first image, too. Fell flat for it (and of course it reminded me of you).
