Day 5 – 5 Day B&W Challenge: Beautiful Contrast

Beautiful Contrast

It’s the fifth and final day of the B&W challenge from AJ . Thanks AJ, you’ve pushed my comfort level a bit. I’ve also been given another B&W challenge that’s a bit different but more on that in a few days!

Today, I’ve picked an image of trees and teasels in a winter landscape. Our weather forecast is for continuing warmth and finally some above freezing temps after tonight and if this is true, it looks as though this icy grip will be taking a hike giving way to spring.

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.

With so many great blogs that I follow, it is tough to pick just five bloggers to challenge and since we are so set in our ways, it’s hard to know who will wish to even be challenged.  Today, I extend the challenge to an interesting and unique ‘old school’ artistic photographer in Victoria, ehpem at Burnt Embers who shoots a lot of B&W with film cameras. Thanks to those who took up the challenge. Happy Friday! :-)

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!
