OLD FRIENDS (LEANING TOGETHER LIKE BOOKENDS)

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Objects or People Older than 50 years


Anyone remember when 50 sounded “old” and 60 was about as close to The End as we could imagine? Life has altered — just a little — since then.

Those of us who don’t die young — we lost a few early on — tend to live longer than our parents did. Many of us are pondering if we really want to live to 100. If you aren’t sure, there are some 90+ actors, singers, and dancers to give you hope!

Han Pot – made around 206 BC–220 AD – That’s pretty old! These were the first mass-produced kitchen pottery.
Fenway Park – Built 1912 on the same day on which the Titanic sank. Probably explains the “real” curse.
Old Number Two, dating back to the 1950s and currently undergoing restoration.
Prow on The Beaver, a cargo ship dating to the 1700s.
Steeple of the abandoned Unitarian Universalist church in Uxbridge. Built in the 1880s, I think. Might be earlier, but I’m not sure.

I have a lot of old friends. I’m not including them. No need to thank  me. I am, after all, one of you, too.

BIG TIME – BLACK & WHITE LARGE SUBJECTS

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Large Subjects


Large is relative. Compared to an ant, a dog is a giant … even a chihuahua. However, I did not shoot any ants and my large subjects are buildings. Alas, no elephants or giraffe and not a whale in sight.

BLACK & WHITE STRUCTURE – THE BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Structure


I love black & white structure. If I have one favorite thing to do in monochrome, anything structural from a cathedral to a scaffold is fair game. And, coincidentally, I’ve been reworking a lot of pictures from the past and many of them in black & white.

The ultimate t-shirt shop

Briefly, on the subject of black & white versus black & white with bits of color: I eventually decided I like black & white to be at least monochrome. If not actually black and white, at least one tone and whitish. I’m not sure why I feel like that because I quite admire what other people do with color as focal points. Maybe it’s because I’m not all that good at it.
