Black and White Wednesday ~ Nicaragua

One of the things that struck me most about Nicaragua was the abundance of color. From blooming flowers to brightly painted homes and buildings to handmade woven hammocks - there was color almost everywhere you looked.

And yet as I looked through my photos, there were a few I wanted to convert to black and white.

the volcano was smoking when we visited
