Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Buildings

Cee’s challenge this week is Buildings, check out her page, she had me at the Lighthouse 🙂 Personally I’m not one for architecture, but I do adore an old building or even better a crumbling and decayed building…..so much history and the stories those old bricks and boards could tell.

I know some people are creeped out by walking through these old ruins, but not me, I find them fascinating and I know I am not alone.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Letter W or X

At the tail end of Cee’s Letter B&W Challenge now with W or X, struggling to find X, and in the end just stuck with a few W, -water, windows, walkway and wallabies (which is more of a monotone than a B&W).DSC_0599OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADSC_0581DSC_8256

Which I guess leaves next week with Y and Z…….that could prove interesting 🙂

Til next time, have a great weekend, safe travels and happy snapping…

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Letters U or V

Playing a bit free and easy with this week’s top of the Letter V or U for Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge; various vintage (cars, paddle steamers and train sheds). Street vendors, under bridges, how about undecided? Pushing huh?

Join us for the fun and games? Visit Cee’s page for further instructions and upcoming challenge themes.

Til next time, happy snapping…

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Letters S or T…

Finally starting to catch up and get back in the swing of things, after a super busy month. This week’s B&W Challenge by Cee is something that starts with the Letters S or T. I used to shoot everything in B&W and lately I find I have moved away from it again, I don’t know why. I guess it goes in phases, I prefer my still life in colour, especially the flowers and my digital art is sometimes de-saturated but rarely B&W, which just leaves the travel stuff. Most of my travel stuff needed to be colour, so………I’m rambling aren’t I?

So my images for this week……….street performer, tap, skull, table and tunnel

I do love B&W and must make an effort to do more in the future. But for now I will be content with these images, only the street performer is new, took that one last weekend in Melbourne.

Til next time, safe travels and happy snapping…

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?

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge I or J

This week’s challenge theme with I or J 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.

Sometimes it’s easier just to keep things simple! I hope you all have a brilliant weekend. I’m off on a new adventure, chat soon.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge – E or F

This week’s challenge is E or F…….kind of feels like old school Sesame Street lol.

So I have gathered up some faces, feet, fences, elephants, flowers, fruit, Exhibitions Buildings and an Expected Mum……..OK so may the last too are a bit of a push, but they still start with E

Join us each week for Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge, visit her page for more info.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend…

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 🙂 lol 16121897_10211805327154161_1741228909_o

I hope you have a brilliantly amazing weekend, I know I am planning on it!

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.
