  1. Wow what pics! Interesting to see things I would normally associate with color in black and white. Also nice choice with the port-o-potty, I wouldn’t have thought to take a picture in there. 😉 The woman with the wool looks like she has quite a bounty! And the theme of plastic made me think at first that the bags of popcorn were actually filled with plastic beads or something; I appreciate your inclusion of plastic bags, I would have overlooked them.


    • Thanks for your comment. I took the plastic bags for various reasons. The popcorn that’s obvious because the plastic is clear. The plastic bags full of wool…..I just saw this caption in my head “modern day bag person”.

  3. Thanks for featuring my blog on B&W wheels. I’m thinking about what to do for Things Made out of Plastic.


  4. This was definitely a fun topic! I really enjoyed looking around at everything and finding the best plastic things. 🙂 I really liked your white plastic chair- isn’t it funny how something so simple can look so dramatic in black and white?
