CBWC: Any Kind of Seating

Cee’s Black & White Challenge

Anyplace one cares to sit, in black and white. I don’t do nearly enough black & white work. I think I need to do something about that. Meanwhile:

  1. I love the waiting chairs. My first love is black and white. I started taking photographs as a newspaper reporter, which was a great experience and where I learned to develop my own film and process it. Black and white offers the basic bones of a composition, while allowing the imagination to fill in the color blanks!

    • Now that you mention it, back when I was also shooting for local papers, it was also all black and white because newspapers didn’t print in color — except for the cartoon section on Sundays (I loved that section). I did all my “head shots” in black and white, too.

      • The best training! And, I got to learn how to develop my own work. Still magic to me!


        • It is rather magical. I remember the first time I watched a picture come out of a plain piece of paper. It WAS magic and I have been hooked on it ever since — which would make it just about 51 years. My granddaughter started even earlier and took her first really good pictures when she was 10 — the age at which I gave her a real camera. Hooked ever since too.

          • We have similar stories Marilyn! My granddaughter also loves photography. She got excited when I gave her a little camera, and has a really good eye! Of course, like any teenager, she shoots a lot with her cell phone!


            • Kaitlin has (at 24) her second Canon DSLR. She has other cameras, too, and I’m sure uses her cell, but she doesn’t consider the shots with her cell to be “real” photography. She is especially fond of black and white and most of her artistic stuff is in black and white or sepia.

              • That’s so wonderful! My granddaughter loves to shoot nature and loves color. My daughter however LOVES black and white and is a real snob about turning a digital shot into black and white because the blacks are never as black and they should be. It’s nice, isn’t it, to have the next generations love some of the same things we love!


  2. Great photos Marilyn.

  3. The rockers might be kind of hard to sit in as they are 😀 😀


  4. so many seats! These are fabulous


    • I didn’t do any new shooting for this and I am promising myself to do more B&W. But these days, we never get out of the house unless we’re buying groceries or going to a doctor. So ONE of these days …

      • Think all of us have lots of ‘one of these days’ to come!


        • I so wished I’d been faster on the hoof to shoot those crows yesterday. If Garry hadn’t stormed out of the bathroom (birthday style no less!), I’d never have known they had arrived. And if I’d spent less time with my jaw hanging open, I could have gotten pictures … and you really can’t shoot a murder of crows in color. You need black & white so you have more “black” options that don’t look grey. Now there’s a series of picture I truly regret not taking.

          There’s an article: the pictures I really wish I’d taken! I’m sure I couldn’t remember half of them.


  5. I love b and w and these are great examples –

    • Thank you. I think I’m not bad at it when I make the effort, but I forget. Part of that is I’m shooting a lot of birds and flowers and they don’t look their beset in monochrome. When I was outside more — a century ago before quarantine — I shot buildings a lot and sometimes furniture. Anything architectural looks great in black & white.
