Seven Day Black and White Photo Challenge

I was challenged by a co-worker to participate in the 7-Day B/W photo challenge.  The rules were simple:  Seven days, seven black and white photos of your life. No people, no pets, no exceptions.

I found the 'no people' part a bit hard but liked the idea of not depending on colour creat focus or to tell a story.  I also took more than a single pic per day so I took it as a weeklong challenge, vs just a pic a day, but am only going to post my top seven here.
