BIRDS IN BLACK & WHITE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Bird

Birds look either great or awful in black & white. Much depends on the background. If it’s busy with trees and all sorts of other jungle, it can be very difficult.

So I went for the simplest construction — birds against the plainest background I could find.

INTO THE CLOUDS – FLYING FOR BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY – Marilyn Armstrong

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-06

FROM PAULA:  I usually post castles, churches and ruins for this challenge, but this time I thought it would be cool to see Traces of the Past in nature. After all traces of the past are all around us.

Here is an example of a remnant of one of many volcanic eruptions on Tenerife Island.


Ah, the past. And, in black and white. It’s funny. When we were in Arizona, there were quite a few old lava fields, but I didn’t shoot them much. They weren’t visually interesting and also, the ground felt really strange under my feet. Now I wish I’d shot just a bit more!

These are a few more of my airplane shots from our trip to the Tuskegee Airmen award meeting last fall. The plane that’s flying is pre-World War II and I wish I had been the person in that cockpit!

All three pictures are of the same airplane. The pilot, who flew during World War II, was gone up into the clouds for more than an hour. Quite a flight!

TRAIN TRACKS IN BLACK & WHITE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Trains and Tracks

Boston has many trains. Commuter trains as well as trains to DC. Florida, and other places. More interestingly, it has trolleys: small trains that run through several towns used by local commuters.

Everyone loves them because unless the standard commuter trains, the trolleys run on time. It’s your job as a car driver to get out of the way when they come!

OF THE EARTH: CEE’S BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Garry Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Ground: sand, dirt, grass, paths


When I took my excursion earlier this month, I took a lot of pictures of the ground. I had no idea why. The grass, the roads, the concrete. A gravel path. Our sidewalk.

Marilyn asked me why I’d take so many pictures of the ground and I said it was going to come in useful one day. Today seems to be the day!
