BLACK AND WHITE – NAME YOUR TOPIC! – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: New Photos, Any topic

I’m not always sure where black and white — also known as monochrome — ends and color begins. There are a lot of choices now that bring back some part of the original color, but not all the color or its intensity.

Four of these pictures are classic monochrome. The final one is “transparent,” tonality which uses part of the original colors but unsaturated.

Detailed sepia — the bench on the lawn by the river at River Bend
Transparent monochrome: Flowers along the edge of the river

BLACK & WHITE – THE VANISHING POINT by Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Vanishing Point

The vanishing point where the lines come together. A vanishing point can be visible or invisible, but “mentally obvious.” You might not see where the road comes together even though your mind knows where the point will be. It’s invisible … but “you” see it.

IT LOOKS LIKE A FACE – CEE’S BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Looks Like a Face

This is the only shot I have which actually looks like a face. To be specific, it looks like Garry’s face, wearing a cap. It forms a huge shadow on the wall of the UMass University Medical School.

Is it Garry? He was there. Maybe it is.

Or … maybe not!

Can you see Garry’s face?

If you look you can see the brim of his hat and his face beneath? It is up in the right quadrant of the picture!

BEWARE THE HORNS! CEE’S BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Horns

I didn’t have much in the way of horned critters in my heap of pictures. Just a few goats and the local cows who sometimes have horns, and sometimes, have them shaved down. I suppose it depends on if they like to fight with them or not. Got a great shot of two goats head-butting, but I’m not sure either of them has horns.

Considering the enthusiasm with which they were going at it, maybe it’s just as well if they didn’t! The cows, on the other hand, were placidly bovine and seem disinclined to do anything other than munch on grass and lie on the cool ground under a tree.

As usual, some are Garry’s and the others are mine.

These guys have horns!
