Here’s the challenge

Black and White Photography Challenge: Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day

Since I’m an old time player at this game, I’m letting people in as long as it’s not a portrait and not the primary part of the image.

I invite you to consider giving this challenge a try, even if you’ve done it already. An extra push to do better photography is good for your art. Moreover, finding a black & white picture that somehow represents “you” in a visual way poses an interesting challenge — an artistic double-whammy, so to speak. At least one of the pictures I used in the first round of these challenges turned out to be one of my most popular-ever posts.

Who’d have thunk it.

This challenge comes from Luccia Gray at “REREADING JANE EYRE.

    1. I think most architecture looks great in black & white. It’s all the lines and the sharp contrast. I’ve been going back through my folders and redoing a lot city pictures in monochrome. Most of them look much better.


    1. I think it’s from the early 1900s when apartments were still all different? I don’t even want to think about how much it costs to live there. One of the most expensive condos (I’m sure it’s a condo because it’s Beacon Hill) in one of the most expensive places to live on this globe!


        1. It’s probably magnificent inside, too. That was when they built apartment that were the size of houses … lots of bedroom, maids room, dining rooms, fire places. It was “smart” to live in an apartment, cooler than a house.


    1. You can see everything much better in black and white, too. I shot a lot of pictures of that building. It was completely unique and the sun was almost directly overhead. It made great shining patches on the windows.

    1. I don’t know if you can actually go out to the balconies. Maybe, hard to know. I think they are part of the fire escape design. Anyway, I never saw anyone outside. I think the creature in the iron is a lion.
