You never know who's going to peeking over your shoulder.

I keep trying to add color to this image but I think it just works better in black and white.

  6. This is so beautiful! I agree that it's great to have this one in black and white. The animals blends perfectly in with the background when it's all the same color tones.

  10. Beautiful. It is nice as is. You could always scan it and colour in photoshop to see and still not lose a thing but wonderful as is.

  13. How AWESOME Is this lovely scene?!! I am so jealous..look at those creatures...you really know how to just make people feel like a kid again. I love it in black and white...and I know you'd just make it sing in color, too..but this is just perfect as is. (In my opinion). I always am thrilled to see what you are up to and thank you for popping by...thank you!
