Seven black and white days

You might have seen it around, especially on Facebook, the black and white photo challenge.

I have, half hoping I don’t get nominated because I don’t quite trust my b&w skills, but now that my bird-, Italy- and doorloving friend Liz from Fetching the World kindly invited me, I’m willing and ready to take part.

You are supposed to invite a new person every day but there is this thing about invitations and nominations – I hate doing it. Everybody I follow are worth it. So I will not do it, with one exception. I would love it if my snaphappy friend Snow that (luckily) Melts Somewhere (Else) took a moment every day and click on something around her other than nappies (even though that could be interesting :D). But if that is too much of a chore, I’ll understand too.

I loved the reaction by the B&W photographer I love the most (and yet I’m behind with her blogs as well). I wrote on FB that inviting her to do it would be like inviting her to breathe. She replied that it cracked her up and she was laughing about it all day. After all, One Day One Image is her trademark.

Here we go then. Seven Days, seven black and white photos of your life. No humans, no explanations. This was Day 1 of 7. I will not post on my blog daily, just on Facebook (where you are invited to be friends as well), but I will post all seven photos here once the week is done if they amount to anything worthwhile.

I said I won’t be nominating people but I wish to rephrase that: I invite you ALL. How hard can it be? (Hm… reply: very!)

Colour is everything, black and white is more.

  1. Thanks for the nomination!!! 😄 I have seen this around, even though I’m not on FB (please do post your pics here at the end of the week so I can see them!) And I would love to participate! This is an interesting challenge… will have to think about my snaps for a bit. (But does that mean they aren’t snaps if I think them through first?!) Btw also love that quote at the end!

    1. Hihi, I’m glad you like the idea, SMSW! I will post the photos on Twitter too daily. I think they are snaps in every case. 😀

    Not hard but it takes talent! Which you have. I just point and click and never futz with the adjustments!

    1. Thanks so much, Jan. I’ll tell you a secret: My camera is called point-and-shoot for the same reason, you know. 😀


  3. The texture and tones are wonderful in this first image. You’ve started the challenge out very strong! I have no doubt that you’ll finish it strong if not stronger too.

    1. Thank you very much, Deborah! 🙂 I have a natural ingrained “not-as-good-as” belief of a snap-happy amateur. 😀 So this means a lot.

      1. Me too. I know what you mean, but this is good!
