An Urge to be Square

By SlowSong
I've suddenly got it into my head to go square and black and white. No idea why, but perhaps it's just something different (for me) to get out of a rut. Anyway, I took a quick trip around the bedroom before the battery on this camera ran out (just three snaps). I'll try to do better from now on, but this'll just get me started on my new project. Knowing me though, it'll be a five-minute wonder - I will need to do colour too, but will try to keep the square thing going..

Many thanks to Moira, Lorenza and Lillian for their UAs on my cat and mouse pic. Much appreciated, and you never know, it might have been you, and all the other voters, who've set me off in my new direction. Smile

I always like a square crop. You've done well here with these three and mono seems to look better with them

I feel like I've just snooped into your room. Square can be good and so can b&w. These are.

Go for it. This is a very creative set, do keep them coming. Very good textures of the raffia basket in v.2!

As Huey Lewis and The News sang back in 1986, it's 'Hip To Be Square'! 😃 A fine trio of monos, Chris, with the lead being my fave 👍
