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

Old cottage

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

Surrounded by trees

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 …

Black and white photography challenge (take 2): Day 1

Jill at Jill's scene, from just across the ditch from me in NZ, has nominated me to participate in the Black and White 5 day challenge.  Some of you might remember that I did this back in January but I'm keen to give it another go!  Bear with me as I try to get my head around …

Black and White Challenge #5

My final black and white photo for the 5 day challenge is a fluffy dandelion.  They looked quite nondescript in the paddock when I went walking, looking for suitable subjects, but when I looked closer I saw the patterns, the structure and I just loved the ethereal, floaty nature of them. Make a wish and blow! I …

Black and White Challenge #2

Pine cones are abundant in the pine forest near our house.  Apparently the cockatoos eat bits out of them and then discard them on the ground. I love their intricacies and patterns. This is my day 2 photo for the 5 days of black and white photo challenge and was taken on my iphone and edited using Instagram. …

Black and White photo challenge #1

A stormy black sky

Late last year (sounds so weird as it was just last week!) I was named in a post by Terri on her blog The beespeak at http://thebeespeak.wordpress.com/ to challenge myself to post a black and white photo each day for 5 days and nominate someone else to do the same.  I loved her portrait of her beautiful momma! …
