Day 3 – 5 Day B&W Challenge: Delicate Balance

Delicate Balance

I’ve accepted this, my first challenge, from AJ at Ouch My Back Hurts to post a black and white image for five consecutive days and challenge a fellow blogger each day. You can pick whatever subject matter you like. Today’s image is from last May when I did a series of black and white tulips as they dried. At the time, I did not like this image, but on second look, I quite like it now with its lopsided way. Funny that how images can grow on you.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

For my third day of this challenge, which is proving to be fun and interesting, I invite a blogger who does amazing work with natural subjects, a fellow Canadian, Victor. I admire your work Victor and I do hope you will take up this challenge, however it is supposed to be enjoyable so it’s totally fine if you do not wish to play! :-)

Day 2 – 5 Day B&W Challenge: Weathered

Weathered

I’ve accepted this, my first challenge, from AJ at Ouch My Back Hurts to post a black and white image for five consecutive days and challenge a fellow blogger each day. You can pick whatever subject matter you like. Today I’m choosing an image from the archives of an old painted door that’s seen better days.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

So, I agreed to take up the challenge and for my second day, I invite a blogger ‘from across the pond’ as AJ puts it, who I admire greatly for his artistic skill with a lens, Adrian. As a lover of black and white, I hope you will wish to participate Adrian. It’s fine if you do not. It’s supposed to be fun!

Day 1 – 5 Day B&W Challenge: Time Travel

June in My Mind

I’ve accepted this, my first challenge, from AJ at Ouch My Back Hurts to post a black and white image for five consecutive days and challenge a fellow blogger each day. With ‘Time Travel’ as the first subject, I’m travelling to June in my mind. :-) You can pick whatever subject matter you like.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

So, I agreed to take up the challenge and for my first day, I invite a blogger I have followed for many years who sees things in a wonderful way, Lynn, who has been surviving a most brutal winter on the eastern seaboard in the US (worse than here!). Lynn, I hope you will wish to participate with any subject matter that takes your fancy. It’s fine if you do not. It’s supposed to be fun!

Grey on Gray

Grey on Gray

Textured bark stands out in the forest. Not sure if this is a black cherry – has that look but will ask the expert at work. Also the spelling of grey or gray –  they both mean the same thing but British spelling is usually with an e and American with an a. I am surrounded by both spellings all the time and I think I generally use grey, likely because of Earl Grey and Greyhound. Go figure. :-)
