Darkness and Light

Black and White Sunday: Darkness and Light

Black and white images have always been part of my photographic life. When I was in my early teens my first cameras, (one was called a Snappy Camera) were always loaded with black and white film as we couldn’t afford to buy and process colour film. I wish I knew where those photos are now.

I sometimes switch my camera into monochrome when I find a subject that I feel would be great in black and white, especially photographing subjects from the past. Other times I take a colour photo and manipulate it, such as my silhouettes of birds in a previous blog.

I love the moon. It gives me a good feeling when it is full and bright.

I also love taking photos of flowers, their colour, their shape, their form but flowers can also look stunning in black and white.

The photo of the old letterbox is one of my favourites. I must admit that I manipulated the photograph to get the effect I wanted.

I am enjoying the photo challenges.

  1. We are, most of us manipulators when it comes to photography – that’s digital age for you, but it is OK, I reckon. I love these offerings, and I agree with you – the flowers can look stunning in B&W, your sunflowers do! The last image is captivating, and I like it a lot, no wonder that it is your favourite. Bushboy, thank you for showing me your work, and especially for answering my challenge. I have two photo challenges every week, and I look forward to seeing more of your entries when you feel like it. Have a great day!

  2. I keep finding a different mood in the sunflower photo – and that to me indicates how moody it is… and following the moon photo it seems like looking up and then down – and then over at the patina mailbox…..
    enjoyed your take on the prompt
