Some weeks flow by faster than others, especially if you have work to do.
Work, of course, is a relative term but making and posting one black&white photo a day for the Seven Days challenge qualified. I say making instead of taking because I don’t take photos in b&w, I only make them such later on computer. Just in case, so that no colour escapes.
Also, I have no idea which images might make good b&w photos, so this week I carried my camera with me at all times and simply kept clicking and hoped for the best. I do it most of the time anyway, just that now I tried paying specific attention to patterns instead of colours. Especially greenery is kind of useless in b&w.
I did very well in following the instructions: one photo every day, no humans, no explanations. Until I didn’t. On the last day – which came much too fast, I was just starting to enjoy myself – I couldn’t decide which photo to post so I posted five. One had a human – but it was only me, and I was in deep shadow. Plus, I couldn’t stay quiet and had to explain (all this on Facebook).
As promised, now that it’s over I’m showing all 6+5 photos here. I’m curious to hear from you. Be honest. Do you like what you see? Is there a black and white future for me? Or should I stick to my colourfulness? In any case, it was a good exercise. Thanks again, Liz, for inviting me to play.
All of these were taken this week in immediate vicinity (say, a 2 km radius). And since this is not the challenge any longer, you can find some explaining in the captions. Click on an image to see it better.
Please see my next post and observe how they compare to the originals. Quite a revelation.
