BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TYPICAL

TYPICAL. This is a typical shot of Venice, and typical is the theme for this week’s Black & White Sunday photo challenge.

TRANSIENCE OF WATER

The greatest resource this Earth still holds is transient, isn’t it.

 

Recently, Jo told me that she would be happy to visit some of Croatian waterfalls. This one is for her. Please join her (if you haven’t already) for her walk around lovely¬†Llandudno.

Prompted by weekly photo challenge: transient.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: VISION

 

What good is sight without vision. This little girl envisioned that she would be feeding swans with cornflakes at the nearby lake, and she did it.

The theme of this week’s Thursday’s Special photo challenge is VISION. Please post your entries before next Thursday, link to this challenge post and leave me your comments bellow. Wishing you all a clear sight and for your positive visions to come true.¬†

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: S-CURVE

 

Curves are nice, attractive and fun, aren’t they? I love them too, ¬†especially in nature. This image comes from Croatian National Park – Plitvice Lakes. If you want to visit it, just follow the snake.¬†

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y2-06

A step into the past, back to some 6,000 BC among the neolithic stones called Almendres Cromlech (Cromeleque dos Almendres)¬†belonging to the¬†“megalithic universe of √Čvora”, Portugal.

 

For further reading about this site click ¬†here.¬†If you want to join today’s challenge with the recurrent monthly theme: Traces of the past – post a photo or two of anything that belongs to a past (distant or recent), make it monochrome and publish it before next Sunday.¬†

IN A ROW

Wouldn’t be nice to have all of one’s ducks or at least matches in a row? Not very feasible except in my photography. I need some peaceable time after my crazy week and wish all visitors the same.

Prompted by B. Huberman’s order.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PORTRAIT VS. LANDSCAPE

 

Today you are invited to post a portrait and landscape format of the same scene. You may be surprised at how much different they look and what each one reveals. That’s the only requirement for this challenge. The subject is up to you. Have a great day!

MAY RECAP

I’ve been so busy lately (and still am) that I completely forgot about my May recap. Here it is:

and here are the black and white images I posted last month:

 

 

 

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: WINDOWS

Last week for Black & White Sunday I converted a landscape shot to monochrome to get rid of the pink colour, and today I am showing a monochrome image where I purposely retained some colour. This method is called selective colouring.¬†The theme of today’s photo challenge is WINDOWS. Show me some windows, old or new, selectively coloured or entirely monochrome it is up to you. Wishing you all a good Sunday and a great week ahead!
