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 …

Long distance photo of snow for 52 week photography project

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 …

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 …

Mundane Monday – Incy wincy spider

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 …

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 …

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

Sunroom on a cold morning

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 …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic Magnolia

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 …

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 …

Every day is an adventure – 68/365

When every day life gets you down, have an adventure! Can you guess what this is? No idea? It's the grate over a drain.  Don't worry - I'm not that desperate that my posts are going down the drain just yet, I just liked the lines and shapes. Just another one of those every day, …

Every day is an adventure – 25/365

I'm not really a square! These patterns and shadows on the floor took my fancy.  You can check out all my photos so far in one place by clicking the link  Every day photo project . Make sure you enjoy an adventure today 🙂

Room with a view 

I took this photo last week at the beach quite by accident. The beach house has amazing views over the water and just seemed to stand out from all the other lovely houses. I love the clean lines and the starkness. What do you think? Black and white?    Or colour?   I'm very interested …

Weekly photo challenge: blurred vision

 A throwaway shot, or purposefully unfocused? I took this photo last weekend at the Wedding Fair and had to retrieve it from my deleted album as I had dismissed it as too blurry.  The only editing I have done is to make it a black and white shot and now there's something about it that grabs …

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 …

Black and white photography challenge (take 2): Day 4

I have always liked dead trees. One of my earliest memories from when I was in primary school is a painting I did for my grandparents - it was a picture of a dead tree and they liked it so much they had it framed and hung it in their entrance hall so that everyone who …

Black and White photography challenge (take 2): Day 3

Just for something different! Today I have used a photo of trees in the pine forest for my Day 3 Black and White photo challenge. I like the way the light is filtered through the trees and the straight lines of the rows of trees. I enjoy seeing things in a different colour and today is …

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

My day 2 photo for the black and white photo challenge is a deliberately over exposed photo of (you guessed it) a sunflower!  Are you sick of them yet???  Please don't answer that question 🙂 I love the dramatic feel that the black and white starkness gives to this picture but again I feel I'm being sacrilegious …
