A Montage of Monochrome & Inversion
Sometimes I just like to play and see what happens, and as it happened, I liked it.
Mostly all flowers this month, what can I say? – I love their shape, colour and texture.
The colour, the shine of the raindrops, the shape of the petals
The shape of the petals and the lack of colour are what I like in this one.
The Moss Slug, coming to eat me – well it might!
Rosa “Peace” – and this photos echoes that to me, soft colours and scattered raindrops.
Look really closely, tilt your screen if you need to, to see the weird rainbow cloud. It was amazing in reality, but I couldn’t capture it properly with my phone camera.
I love the orange rust on the abandoned tractor frame in the regrowth against the rock backdrop.
This month the moments have been filled with the arrival of my first grandchild.
Lots of Flowers this month – it’s been quite this month. Here’s what I love about these photos.
Peek-a-Boo Heart, soft colours
Weird Phenomenon – Cobwebs everywhere – looking fairy-like in the morning dew
Happy Colours, the purple seems to pulse out from the blue
Robin Red Breast – searching diligently for Breakfast – I love how they flit hither and yon
My favourite photo of the year so far. Cool, cool colours with a quite splash of frosty red
Snap me if you can – loving the colour and the closeup
Surreal – the colour again, and the out of focus areas highlighting the stamen arch
I love the shadow on the water – like some foreign ink writing
Inverted photo of a Daisy Head – I love that little tuft on the side.
This just says “Lush” to me – the colour, the softness, the sparkly drops of water.
Quiet monotone colours of a Moth.
New life opening, love the contrast with the green and the tiny burst of pink.
All those sparkles – and the bird against the sky make this a favourite.
The simplicity of a Sweet William.
The clear drops on creamy gold
The silhouette of bird and branch
Creamy white against brick and leaves
The tight lead she has on her Ram
The stance, the way the feathers ruffle down his sides
A simple bubble, with miracle colours
The Yoga Moorhen
I inverted this photo of an Eagle and a Crow, I love the change it makes to the birds, and the lavender grass.
The Glow, the Crescent, the Craters. The Moon gives me a promise that there is more than what we know on Earth.
This is a hard colour to photograph with my camera, I have tried many times and ended up deleting the photo, so when this shot turned out I was really happy. I like the way it occupies the space in the photo too.
The Framing, the Black & White, the minimal scenery.
The veins and the bright colour.
I wish I had caught them when they faced me, but it was through the Kitchen window and the angle was wrong. Still like the photo though – who doesn’t like Robin Red Breasts.
Joyous, childlike innocence – it just makes me happy to look at this photo.
Because I still take a lot of photographs, and posting just one a week for the EPE isn’t winnowing down my stock, I thought I’d showcase a few of my favourites at the end of each month, with just a few words as to why I like them.
Strangely, although I usually prefer colour, this month I just liked some of my photos better in black and white.
I don’t know why, but this says “Summer Country Wedding” to me.
I love how the last 2 daisies show against the darkness, one twisted and reaching and the other cupped open.
Branches against the sky, silver trunks bare and stark.
The flip of the leaf, the arch of the stem.
That droplet down in the far right corner in all its crystal clarity.
A very lucky shot – freedom.
The looming clouds against the dry grass.
