At first I thought black & white? Do I really have photos that would be suitable?
Then I thought – well, my beloved Fattee Cattee is black, & fluffy & rather photogenic:
& flowers, even roses, minus their glowing colours are then plays of light and shadow, as are creamy magnolia, simple daisies and the fluffy native flowers:
Finally, minus its colour, a Grevillea flower with raindrops:
Birds are rather striking: black & white brings out the startling white of the gulls and the power of the raven:
The straight lines and angularity of city architecture is perfect for black and white:
& objects (these are Christmas ornaments) are revealed in a manner which both simplifies their presence in a photo and intensifies the interaction of light and shadow:
Some things are just perfect for black and white: a yacht with a pure white sail on a dull day:
And trees: their varied shapes and shadows. These first 2 are paperbark – wild and almost scary.
They have wonderful flowers:
Black & white is great for details: a cedar trunk and the trunk of a massive moreton bay fig:
it’s also wonderful for the amazing shapes of trees: a peppermint tree and – well – I don’t know
These are Jacaranda trees in flower in Hyde Park, Perth, WA:
& the marvellous shapes of, the light and striping shades on, towering conifers:
I have enjoyed this challenge – probably more than I should have. I hope I haven’t overdone it!!
I love playing with colour in my photos, but this has been a rewarding & truly a learning experience. I am looking forward to visiting other entries.
