Quotography - Black & White


"If you see the world in black and white, you're missing important grey matter."  Jack Fyock

At around five months old Chet, my beautiful black and white puppy, started getting these pale spots all over.  At first I was sorry to see them.  But now, as with more important issues in life, I'm starting to appreciate the grey.

I LOVE this quote. I must 'fess up tho, I've never heard or read it before, but, wish I had. I will try and remember that, live by it and remind those who live in 'gloom' all the time that they are lacking in foresight.

Sorry it's been way too long for me to stop by since you left me a comment last Thursday...I've been busy working on a genealogy project. Hope your week ahead is glorious.

Chet is the perfect model for this shot. Love the quote too...so true life is not all Black n White..lots of grey in between.

Chet wears his grey speckles well. They make him even more handsome and interesting.

Yes, the grey areas are the interesting ones.

So, little Chet is getting gray hairs already? lol - just kidding. Chet is growing fast! His gray spots give him more character.
