5-DAY BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – DAY 3

72-BW-Boston-Night_012

I was tagged by Cordelia’s Mom, Still to participate in this challenge.  Today, I’m posting some of my favorite street scenes, a natural black and white subject.

It turns out that no one is quite sure where this challenge originated, but everyone seems to be enjoying it. It’s got only two rules:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using one of your photos in B&W. It doesn’t have to be new or any particular subject. Just black and white.

2. Each day, invite another blog friend to join in the fun. The hard part is going to be finding people who haven’t done it already and would like to play.

On this third day of the challenge, I’d like to invite my good friend Bob Mielke at Northwest Photographer to participate. He’s a prolific and brilliant photographer and I hope he can find the time in his busy schedule.

Please remember that no one is obligated to play. If you don’t want to, you don’t have to do it.

As I tell everyone, you don’t have to play if you are too busy or just prefer not to, but you are officially (formally) invited.

Urban street scenes pretty much always look good in black and white. Night in the city is a natural fit with the gray-scale.

  3. You wouldn’t think black-and-white could be exciting, but that last picture, especially, makes me wonder where all those people are going, and what will they be doing, and what are they thinking? Good job as usual, Marilyn.

    • Thank you. The second one was one of those happy accidents. It was nice in color … but I picked a very grainy black and white converter and got that film noir look. Even though I know what I did, I have never quite been able to do it exactly the same way again. It was the processing I did before, then the conversion afterwards that produced that “look.” I keep trying,though!
