BIG STUFF IN BLACK & WHITE

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Large Subjects

Large is, of course, relative. A sunflower is large compared to the bee gathering its pollen, but a mountain is forever big … unless the other mountains nearby are huge.

We took so many pictures in Arizona, there are still hundreds of them I have yet to process. The first three were taken this past January, but (finally) processed today. Because mountains and deserts and giant cacti … you can’t argue with designating them as “large.” And per Cee’s advice, I’ve been having fun playing with filters.

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear …

The Superstitions are big, but so are the saguaro ... and that wonderful, big sky ...

And here, we have a pretty big boat in the driveway of a rather small house.

  1. Great photos – I recognise the filters.

    • Topaz filters have changed my world. I’m acquiring them one at a time. The only ones I don’t use much are the Texture set. But all the others are great and very useful. I think many of us depend on the filters these days. I use Photoshop mostly as a platform for filters.

      • I’m running out of original stuff. Have to get back to the grind stone. I’m working a project with Rajiv, who’s from India.

        • I haven’t been getting out much. Between all the stuff going on, trips here and there and doctor’s appointments, I haven’t had time to do much more than tread water. I’ll be glad when we get to the third week in August when everything slows back down to normal. The next three weeks are dizzying. Good luck with projects! I’m glad I’ve got anything new. It’s all day-to-day.

  5. Love that first shot — it really captures the dome of sky over the desert and mountains, and the 3 palm trees just accent that!
