Phoneography and Non-SRL Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Black and White

IMG_20150101_202010~2 (Small)Black and white images are always a challenge,

I don’t set out to take a black and white photo, so I am adjusting colour photos to test the monochromatic results.

Some are surprising, others, a disappointment.

 Street Photography appears to work well with black and white

The Nexus 4 makes it easy to edit and produce a good monochromatic effect

Bench Series: February


I was able to find Jude’s challenge via Nowathome

If you find there is something about infinite possibilities when you view a photograph of a park bench, you can join in. Here are the instructions:

Create your own post and title it Bench Series: February

Include a link/pingback to Jude’s challenge in your post so others can find it too

Add the tag ‘bench series’ so everyone can find the benches easily in the WP Reader

100 Steps Black and White Challenge


The simple beauty of flowers growing along the public footpath, but also the ubiquitous plastic rubbish:   A fact of city life, that nature has to contend with.  Reality.

Plastic ruins nature

Society failures

Future undoing

Environmental disaster

We only have to pick it up and put it in the bin!!!  – Easy for most of us.

Black and White Sunday – Cape Gooseberry

Cape gooseberry

First fruit from my garden. It reminds me of being a child and playing in my Grandmother’s garden, where Gooseberry like this grew wild. The paper cases are a delight to pull apart and inside you will find a delicious berry.

Taken and adjusted slightly with Moldiv and the Nexus 4 Phone camera for Paula at Black and White Sunday

Black and white photography, almost surreal, always interesting and pure. Definitely something for the shutterbug to ponder about.
