THE 7-DAY BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE – DAY 5 – 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.

        1. The first one came down immediately. I was up maybe a day and then it was gone. THIS one was up for eight years, through all seasons. It looked pretty good for the first five years, then gradually, over the following years began to disintegrate. But you know, it’s just canvas and sticks, so it wasn’t really made to last through four seasons a year for eight years. That it lasted that long is a tribute to how well I cared for it … and how well it was made in the first place.
