Black & White Sunday: Convergence


Convergence is the act of converging, merging, uniting.

If you have skills or resources to merge photos (or shoot in camera double exposures) you can show it for this theme – that’s one way to interpret it.

Other ways are to find a point where several other points (beings, things etc.) cross, come together. Think of confluence, concurrence, meetings, encounters, mingling. I think I have said enough πŸ˜€ . Β It’s up to you now. Have a good and creative Sunday! Your entries may be submitted any time between now and the next Black & White Sunday.



(clicking on the photo will allow a better view of convergence)


While doing research for this challenge I stumbled upon this great quote that I must share:
“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson (French photographer)

    • Tack Lena. I think that this quote really sums up what the right attitude in the process of taking photos is. Nowdays in the digital era it may not be so evident as in the film era, when photographers had to take a more cautious attitude when shooting. Today there are so many snappers that call themselves photographers (not saying of course that you are, but you must have noticed them around)

  2. A creative Sunday… Hmm… Well, I’ve posted a photo for your challenge. Not sure if I’ll be more creative this Sunday, but I do have some vacuum cleaning and a visit to the gym on my to-do list this Sunday and I might be able to squeeze in some creativity there! I like your photo, it has this urbex feel to it, this dumporama style. πŸ˜€

  3. Love that image, as the Cardinal says, it has a bit of an urbex feel….I shall have to see what I can find! Love that Cartier Bresson quote! πŸ˜€


  4. Every quote I’ve ever read from Cartier-Bresson has been wonderfully perceptive, this no exception. In your photo the curved bits of line add interest to the retreating perspective, as do the graffitied carriage, the buildings and the overhead wires and stuff. You ALWAYS value add – and I hope this weekend also been able to relax.


    • I’ve just checked my phone for comments notification, and I thank you for your input. I am not relaxing at all (not even time to eat and much.less for anything else). As I said on Friday working 30 unpaid hours this weekend which.consists in translating several dozens pages that will.ruin the company I work for and subsequently the country. See you.


  5. Wonderful quote and discordant music πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Thank you for the explanation, beautifully illustrated. I hope you manage to get everything done that you need to this weekend, Paula. Sending more useless hugs!

  8. It’s April 3 and it’s snowing. On top of the flowers. This challenge gave me the push I needed to work on a picture I’ve been trying to “get right” since I originally took it last January. You are my inspiration πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  11. What a lovely quote and so true. It really compliments your stunning shot Paula. Talk about ‘artsy’! πŸ˜€

    Love the music and I wish I could add a player like this on my blog, but WP only allows it on the premium and business.

    Have a great day honey. Hope you are doing better. β™₯ Hugs β™₯

    • Hello precious. It is not all bad, but so very busy. Thank you for asking. Yes, I have been standing on the train tracks without feeling suicidal :D. The music is by Japanese band “Mono”. This track is called Loco Track. I find it very suitable. xx

  14. Wonderful interpretation for this challenge. A wonderful mood. I can almost hear the train whistle blowing. And your blog is giving me lots of ideas of different images I would like to try. I’ve just read the instructions for how to shoot multiple exposures.


  15. very good Paula. It reminded me when I was learning to draw and learned about perspective (Merci aux italiens) and “Point ou ligne de fuite” (I will have to look it up. Not sure it’s called so.)
