A Montage of Monochrome & Inversion
Sometimes I just like to play and see what happens, and as it happened, I liked it.
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.
Earlier this week Hugh invited me to participate in the Black & White Photography Challenge, by posting a B&W photo each day, for a total of 5 days. I have really enjoyed looking at things in a different “Light”. My last photo is something I keep on my hall table, it belonged to my Nan and reminds me of her every time I come in my front door.
Day 5 – Teacup, Saucer and Plate.
Hugh invited me to participate in the Black & White Photography Challenge and I have been quite enjoying it, which is a bit surprising as I love colour. This photo is a very good example of why I am rethinking B & W, the focus stands out so much more without colour.
Day 4 – One among Many
If you have been following my blog for a while now I think you know I love taking photos of flowers, so here is my Day 2 of the Black & White Photography Challenge.
