Black And White Photography, Laurie, Photography


It’s not uncommon to hear people describe B&W images as dramatic, moody, even ominous.  Yet the day  was bright, the sky a deep blue, and the grass so green under the shining sun, and my goal was to reflect that in this image.  How’d I do?

  1. Laurie, I definitely did visit your blog to see the photo you meant to post here. I really loved them both, as I did your thoughts about conveying through black and white the beauty of the day you described. For me, one of them did that just a bit better than the other. I’m not gonna make you guess which one I picked – you just have to go to your blog to find out 😉


    1. I’m just back from visiting your blog and I’m so glad to welcome you to Monochromia, an incredible group of photographers and then there’s me 🙂
      I’m really not being critical of myself, as I am still a newbie to the incredible world of photography. I’ve learned so much from everyone and look forward to more inspiration!
      Thank you for your thoughts!


    1. Okay! Well I’m not sure I knew that consciously but yes, you are right! Isn’t it interesting that 12 photos eventually works it’s way down to one that you like? Actually, I told Joe that “I just posted another B&W from the same series on Life on the Bike … and am now thinking I might have posted the wrong one on this blog”. If you have time, let me know your thoughts. I learn so much from all of you!


    1. Thank you, Raewyn! I just visited your blog … your photography is full of variety and your commentary on the elections was welcome. I’ve wondered how individuals feel now that the results are known.


    1. Thanks Joe!! I just posted another B&W on Life on the Bike … and am now thinking I might have posted the wrong one on this blog. When you get a free moment from that consruction project and all the other things on your plate, check it our and let me know what you think!
