Montreux – Black and White Wednesday

Where have I been for over a month? Traveling around Cuba for two weeks visiting schools, pharmacies and clinics without having access to the Internet or telephone kept me from keeping up with my food blog. The people of Cuba are very friendly, happy people who love to have their photos taken. Those photos will have to come later as I am now in Montreux, Switzerland with my beautiful and talented daughter who was so sweet to ask me to accompany her for a conference she was attending. I’ve walked nearly the entire city and hope to go on the scenic railways later on in the week, as well as cruising on the numerous boats that are a frequent site on Lake Geneva.

But you have come to my site to see black and white culinary photos! Everyday, I’m photographing my lunch and sometimes dinner depending upon the lighting situation in the restaurant. No one pays much attention to me when I pull out my iPhone-I guess the camera phones are becoming the norm now. The photos were taken with the  Hipstamatic Foodie SnapPak, a great lens/film combo perfect not only for food photography, but also for landscapes and still-life photos. Photos were converted to black and white using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.0.

A very warm welcome back to Susan, creator of Black and White WednesdayWeek #28 made its debut this past Wednesday. I’m happy to be back in the groove of thinking food and food related images in monochrome.

    Sounds like you've enjoyed two very different trips! I've visited Switzerland (and loved it) but I've never been to Cuba. What a great opportunity!
