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.

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.

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.

PATTERNS IN BLACK & WHITE

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge:
Outdoor – Patterns


Patterns are fun in black and white. You can really see the repetitions without the distraction of color. Textures and forms always seem at their best in monochrome.

BLACK & WHITE DOGS, SNOW, AND A HAZY MOON

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Open Topic


I haven’t been getting out lately, but fortunately, there always stuff going on inside. Dogs. Snow. Toys. I suppose these could just as easily be considered oddballs!
