REPEATING PATTERNS – SUNDAY’S BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE

In nature and in architecture, we see patterns repeat. And that is the subject of this week’s Black & White Sunday Challenge.

Looking across from living room through French doors to deck in late afternoon …

Sepia and shadows ... the deck with sun coming from the west

      Thank you. I’ve had to relearn black & white. I used to know, but then along came digital and I forgot for a few decades.

        I truly believe nothing can touch film black and white I have two cameras I have barely used and lenses I need to use or find a home for . I need to take some photos of my granddaughters in black and white.

    These are so aesthetically pleasing. Anyone who doubts whether or not to tackle in B&W photography should come here. Thank you, Marilyn.

      Thank you. Until I started following you, I was doing almost no black and white. Which is funny, because that’s where I started in photography. In film and in black & white because I could develop and print it myself. Then, along came digital and I more or less forgot about black and white. Nice to rediscover it lo these many years later πŸ™‚

      Thank you. I like it better in black and white. I’ve taken a lot of variations on that picture, but this one I actually like πŸ™‚

      Thank you. I wasn’t sure if these really counted, but they were the best I had to work with … so I stretched the definition a bit πŸ™‚
