THE 7-DAY BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE – DAY 2 – A SECOND ROUND

Sue Vincent from Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo, a wonderful site and definitely a thinking person’s website. Anyway, she hailed me to come join this challenge. Again. And I said yes. Why not?

I did this first time around on behest of Judy Dykstra-Brown. Sometimes, getting roped into something is just what we need. My black & white photography never got the energy and effort I’ve used for color photography. This project improved my work.


“Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life.
No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day.”


Having directly or indirectly finagled more than a few people to join this challenge a few weeks ago, I’d feel a bit bashful asking them again, but I invite you to consider giving this challenge a go, even if you’ve done it already. A push to do better work is always good for your art. Moreover, finding a good black & white picture that represents “you” in some interesting visual way poses an interesting mental challenge — an artistic double-whammy, so to speak. At least one of the pictures I used in the first round of challenges turned out to be one of my most popular-ever posts.

Who’d have thunk it.

      Thank you. Rust is one of the great things to photograph in black & white. Rust and clouds. You just can’t go wrong with either one 🙂

    The curves and textures of the old Dodge are really absorbing. I think that’s one of the things that is so captivating about b & w. Taking in the detail. Then there’s the chance of dramatic contrast and/or silhouette, and of course the many subtleties of grey.

      Anything with a lot of texture makes a great subject. It’s why we hunt down collapsing buildings and rusty old trucks. You can mess with black & white to a much great extent than with color, too. It’s turning out to be a lot of fun.

    This works well in B&W.

    A rusty old truck sure makes for a great picture.
