52 week photography project – Week 11: Black and White

Magnolia in black and white for Photographer's choice 52 week photography project

Source: Week 11: Black and White I have written before how much I love Spring, the flowers, the colour, the new life and in particular my magnolia tree. I always take copious shots hoping for one that's just right. So you can imagine how wrong I felt turning this one into black and white for Week …

That feeling of déjà vu

Siblings

It hit me as I walked down the steps and across the tarmac.... That feeling of déjà vu. I started remembering all the times I'd arrived at this same airport, in my eyes it hasn't changed much over the past 40 or so years. I can't even begin to add up the number of times …

Mornings are the best part of the day – Weekly Photo Challenge

Anyone for tea?This week's photo challenge asks for an image of what a typical 'morning' looks like.  Every morning starts with a cup of tea in a mug when I'm at home, but as I'm visiting my parents at the moment, we use the lovely white cup and saucer set for the first of our numerous …

There was the usual thunder and lightening and finally after all the build up, some rain! …

Weekly photo challenge: Alphabet fun

Having fun with letters of the alphabet and a light box! This week's photo challenge is all about the Alphabet and I've gone for a very literal take on the theme, which is most unlike me. This week, let the alphabet be your inspiration: find a string of letters..... I found my daughter's light box …

Weekly photo challenge: Weightless in the sky

From the plane window

Gravity and weightlessness are things I just don't understand very well but I am left in awe of the end results. I took this photo from the window seat on a recent flight.  I love clouds and being above the clouds in a plane gives them a whole new perspective. I usually stand on the …

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and white

black and white solar light

I used this photo in a recent Mundane Monday challenge. It's a photo of a solar light in the garden, taken from above.  In the original the yellow stands out and now in black and white it looks completely different. I decided to play around with the photo and ended up transforming it into black and white …
