Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Something starting with O or P

I have not posted in the challenge for awhile……but back with this week’s fun letters, for Cee’s B&W Photography Challenge. I didn’t seem to have anything with letter ‘O’ from our recent trip, but how about a Paddle Steamer (PS GEM) and some large Paintings of People?

Five Minutes @ Doughnut Time, Regular Random

DSC_0055

This week’s regular random is quite special, well for me anyway. First I rarely do street photography, as most of you know, but this day it seemed fitting. Second, and most importantly I shot it with Desley. We had met up for lunch in Fitzroy and had just enjoyed a lovely lunch and wander through the Rose Street Artists Market, we started to wander the streets looking for graffiti and thought it might be fun to both shoot our regular random on the same subject; at the same time.

Desley used the Art setting on her camera and got some very cool effects…….don’t forget to check out her pics from her post. I felt that due to the area, the hipster vibe, the street art and the cliche doughnut shop, I really wanted to process as least some of them in over contrast B&W. I normally feel so self conscious shoot street photography, but with both of us together, it felt safe and comfortable.

It’s actually a cool spot for five minutes of random…….and as Desley just reminded me, NO doughnuts were consumed by us during the shoot! OMG what is wrong with us? lol

Well at least someone enjoyed them with a coffee. For more info on Regular Random, visit Desley’s Page; just shoot one object for five minutes and move only useful and not the object.

Tuesdays Textures…

I honestly don’t really have anything much to share today, art wise, I am still working on the photos from our trip; let alone any art! But I thought I would share this from Instagram.

Wolfman

This is a new character we have just started working with, he doesn’t even have a name yet! DesleyJane suggested Baron Von Wolfenstein (lol), but I just call him WolfMan…….I am sure something will come eventually.

So a funny story, while we were shooting this at Garfield Water Wheel in North West Victorian Gold Mining area, hubby was attempting to climb up these rocks (quite difficult in these gloves and mask) when a family with small children happened on us……..I was expecting screams when they saw the wolf. They did stop in their tracks and looked very confused, the Mother burst our laughing and explained to the children it was OK, that the wolf was really just a costume. Moth proceeded to remove the wolf head and THAT is when the kid started screaming! Ha Ha Ha, so funny the look on that kids face……….has he NEVER seen someone take off a mask before? πŸ™‚

Anyway this is just a grainy B&W image from the smart phone, I will eventually create some art from the photos taken and will share on here soon.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge I or J

This week’s challenge theme with I or JΒ is a bit more difficult, in fact I really could not find a photo for I – it’s probably something so simple I missed it and have a face palm moment when I see everyone else’s post. But for this week I bring you an old jetty and an old jalopy.

And me……….a photographer, taken by my friend Suzanne, OK so maybe not my best angle, but if you want to point a camera in my face, be prepared for it to possibly look like this πŸ™‚ lolΒ 16121897_10211805327154161_1741228909_o

Black and White Photo Challenge – Perspective

Change of Perspective is the theme for this week’s B&W Challenge, so perhaps the perspective is not really so challenging for some, but for very much so. The building on a funny angle and not symmetrical, seeing the patterns on the floor caused by shadows from the front door…….I see them everyday,but barely notice them. Seeing my office through a book, looking up close and personal with boring mundane items in the bathroom, and shooting from the ground………..all a different perspective for me.
