        • I switched back to Modularity Lite. I had been using Twenty Twelve, but there is an annoying bug in the editor. Also, I wanted to have widgets at the bottom of the main page and comments were not showing on the “About” page. Navigation should be the same, except there is no automatic scroll at the bottom of the page.

  7. Nice! I love “the wall” particularly. There is something almost surreal about it.

        • Where I live, Houston, the winters are mild. It rarely goes below freezing and usually the afternoon highs are cool but comfortable. The summers are very hot and humid with a usual high of 37C.

    These B&W are fantastic! I’m caught between the “Ruined Cathedral” and “Building Courtyard” one. Those are my favorites.

    • This series was very well received on WordPress. More goes into digital black and white than it appears at first. The digital sensor is a color device and simply removing the color information does not result in the kind of tones that black and white film delivers.

    • Than you Denise. I suppose it could be called abstract because it is less than a complete scene. That is where I stayed.
