I opened my photo folder, clicked on a date, clicked on a photo and this is what came up for Mid-week Monochrome – Dining.

Everyone dines in their own special way.

The Excavator

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Construction Related

On a recent trip to see my daughter, we walked about town and me taking photos. I just had to look over the fence to see what was happening at a construction site. The excavator was busy digging a big hole.

Interesting Light

The word prompt from Jenn at Traveling At Wits End for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Interesting Light

“Sometimes photographers look for a subject first – what we’re going to photograph – and forget to look for the light.”

Quite often the lighting is something that draws me to take a photo.

Walking into a room, the lighting and setting looked just perfect. There are a few things I would change but I am content with the result.

Sometimes the lighting lends itself to black and white

Again the lighting in the room attracted my attention. This one is a rare photo taken with my phone which I don’t use all that often. Yes a lazy shot as I couldn’t be bothered to go and get my camera

Another black and white. The light across the rocks on the beach gave deep shadows but the texture is still evident.

More from the beach. Using shadows as the focal point. The shadow walked across the rock face

An extreme close up of the sun at sunset through clouds. Light and dark to give emphasis.
