Don't forget to buy some flowers for that special someone on Valentine's Day. Street photography in Zagreb, Croatia. One for LE'S B/W Challenge. Thanks for looking and leaving a comment. Just a note: Friday I depart for three weeks back home in the USA. I'll be checking in most days, but I may miss a few. All the best!

Doug - Very effective b/w work. The flowers and face are the focal points as a result of the strong contrast.

You are returning home for three weeks....I wish I were coming to Italy for three weeks. Spending three days there in 1995 was definitely not enough! Fantastic black and white shot of the foofy vendor, Doug.

Doug, I think to see by the expression on her face, that this lady is a good hearted woman. If I would have been there, I had bought all her flowers, lol.
Very good entry for the B&W challenge.

Have a good stay in the USA my friend!

Excellent and crisp detail Doug - nice B&W. I don't know where you're heading in the US but if it's out east you'd better bring snowshoes!

Fabulous capture and contrast, excellent b/w - well I didn't get flowers but I got some fabulous French Champagne, yummy. Really do like this showing us the character, lighting & shadows on this man's face.

Hope you are enjoying being back on home ground, have fun and take lots of pictures.
