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

52 week photography project – Week 11: Black and White

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  11 of our 52 week…

52 week photography project – Week 4: Long Distance

Source: Week 4: Long distance For those of you playing along at home here is Week 4 of our 52 week photography project, with the theme of Long distance. My photo was one of my favourite views, of the aptly named Snowy Mountains, but this time in black and white:  The others photos were fantastic with a portrait, a long…

Unusual photo of a child made into a sketch

It’s nice, it’s different, it’s unusual

It’s nice, it’s different, it’s unusual… I’ve been a fan of Lignum Draco and his amazing photographs for quite some time now and this week he asks us to experiment with something unusual. This photo is unusual for me in a few ways.  I rarely photographs people, and if I do, I rarely share them, unless it’s my family! I took this…

Against the Odds – Weekly Photo Challenge

I’m away from home this week, taking in the city lights, enjoying a different pace of life, seeing new things, playing tourist and unexpectedly meeting up with some blogging friends. I decided for this week’s photo challenge to focus on a great movie I saw this week.  It was called Lion and is a classic Against the Odds story.  I…

Mundane Monday – Incy wincy spider

Incy wincy spider This was the sight I saw as I went to open the fridge this morning. A big huntsman spider had made himself quite comfortable on the fridge door and wasn’t fazed at all when I went to open it.  I jumped and squealed but he didn’t seem to mind that either. He blended in really well on the…

Mundane Monday Challenge – look down!

I was in Melbourne on the weekend and while out shopping in the city we walked through some of the grand old arcades.  They are beautiful old buildings – well old by Australian standards anyway. This particular one had Christmas trees, decorations and sparkly curtains hanging from the roof which took your eye upwards. But on the floor was this fantastic…

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White – sunroom

It’s time for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge  and as it’s the third Monday of the month, the theme this week is Black and white. My sun-room is an absolute delight at this time of the year – it’s sunny, light, warm, cosy, comfortable, functional and it’s my go-to place, my hideaway, my cocoon. I have lots of lovely photos with clear blue…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic Magnolia

This week, share with us your monochromatic images. Be calculating and creative in choosing your subject and focal point; resist the urge to simply take a photo of something with a single color range. I’m still not sure if this photo fits this week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge theme of monochromatic.  I decided to use my magnolia photo and played around…

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White

I have used this photo before (ages ago) but I really love the way the sky behind the Turning Torso (in Malmo Sweden) is made to look so much more dramatic in monochrome. The tower seems to stretch forever upwards! In colour it was just another photo of the Turning Torso.  I called this ‘Monochrome Malevolence’. Sally D’s Mobile Photography…

Black and white photography challenge (take 2): Day 5

Well here I am at the end of my 5 day challenge, thanks again to Jill for nominating me.  I have enjoyed having a second bite at this challenge, as black and white is not my normal or preferred photography style.  Having said that, I have learnt and experimented more this time around and it hasn’t been as stressful for…
