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 – Rock face

I've enjoyed this week's Daily Post's photo challenge  so much that I'm adding another post - something I rarely do! My earlier post is here - Monochromatic Magnolia in case you missed it. The theme for this week is monochromatic.  A powerful monochromatic image is composed of a gradient of a single color, and has an emphasis …

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 …

Every day is an adventure – 65/365

Are you looking at me? I regularly go running with the bulls! Adventure all the way - the only way to live. He can go straight to the Photo Rehab clinic. Every day is an adventure is where I will post a photo every day for 365 days (not necessarily taken that day) – sometimes with …

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 …

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 …

Sunflower bud – Photo Rehab

I love looking at the photos that bloggers take for the Photo rehab clinic that Lucille at Bridging Lacunas co-ordinates.   I offer my latest favourite photo to be included. We had a power blackout for the second night in a row tonight after another violent storm swept through the area and I took the …

Can you guess what this is?

What do you think this is?  It's my first entry for the Photo 101 Rehab Clinic! Yesterday my husband alerted me to this 'weird' thing growing in our garden, saying that I might like to photograph it. His first question was "what do you think it looks like?" I replied that I thought it looked like …

Black and White Challenge #3

Blue tongue lizard

  This is a Blue Tongue Lizard which lives around our house and shows himself every now and again.  We found him eating the cat's dry food in the garage just the other day - the cat wasn't very happy about it but left him to it!  I took this photo with my iPhone and …

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. …
