Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles

I admit it. I took many of these pictures because I liked the angles. I knew I would do many of these in black & white. This has offered a perfect opportunity, so thank you so very much Cee!

    1. I took them with black & white in mind, but I shot them in color because this way, I have a choice. If I shot in black & white, I could never try them in color. Pity you can’t shoot both ways at the same time, isn’t it?

    1. Most of the “army” equipment was pretty dark in color anyhow … a very dark army green (deep khaki). So changing it to black & white didn’t take much effort. The hard part was keeping the shapes and some texture with enough contrast so they didn’t turn muddy. It was fun.

      I sent you a (free) copy of my book from Amazon. Look for the notice(s) in your em-ail. Just collect it. It will go right onto your Kindle. If you’ve lost the notices, I’ll send you another one.


      1. You did a wonderful job changing to black and white. I understand about keeping shapes texture and contrast s it’s not muddy. I’d delighted it was fun.
        I’ll go immediately and check to see if your book. Although I might have to wait for Adam so I don’t lose it.
        I sent you mine as well, but I’m not sure if they are opening or why not. I sent to another lady, and she said she couldn’t get into them. I’m not sure why because they were my own personal copy so should have opened automatically. I’ll check when Adam’s up I think as I don’t want to lose it. Thank you so much, Marilyn. I’m deeply touched. And I might add, can’t wait to read it.


        1. PDF only opens as text on the computer so it is harder for me to read than Kindle. There is a way to get it onto Kindle, but PDF on Kindle is text and small. You can’t change the font size, so I’ll have to read it on the computer. I do so much stuff on the computer, it is hard to find the hours. I do most of my reading of text in bed at night.


      1. Butterfly’s are flying miracles, both light and fragile. To me Jumbo’s and Airbus’s are flying miracles – hundreds of tons in weight and yet they carry 5-600 humans in the air for hours! I’d prefer those old types to today’s flying tanks any day. πŸ™‚



      1. They only put them on folding wing aircraft so the mechanics don’t accidentally install some part ‘backwards’ or up-side-down when being maintained in a hangar. Sounds dumb but it’s amazing how dumb we humans can be when faced with unusual situations – like a plane with folded up wings instead of level flat ones! πŸ™‚
