Black & White Photo Challenge #1

Copy of Jan2012 252 - Version 2I have been invited by Ana of Celebrating Sunshine to participate in a Five Day Black and White Photography Challenge. Her blog is full of cheerful, inspirational posts exploring the positive side of life. Please visit her blog to see for yourself. Thank you, Ana for inviting me to this challenge.

There are only two rules for the black and white photography challenge:

  1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.
  2. Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.

I’m normally drawn to color photography over black and white, so I accepted the challenge to see if I could improve my appreciation for it.

Today I invite the Woodland Gnome at Forest Garden to join us in the challenge. She documents, with beautiful photos and prose, her garden and surroundings along the James River in Virginia. No pressure, this is about having fun!

    I love looking up at trees and seeing blue sky but your lovely image gives another perspective: )

  5. Thank you, Eliza. This picture is spectacular; so real, it makes me dizzy. 🙂

  6. Congrats. Have fun:)

  7. What a wonderful photo, Eliza! It really puts the human point of view in proper perspective! It is a perfect choice for Black and White. That looks like a ‘snow sky,’ and hope it is just a trick of the light 😉 Once I figure out how to convert my photos to B&W, I’ll be happy to take up your challenge 😉 Thank you for your kind words. How could I possibly refuse after an invitation like that??? ❤

  8. Beautiful photo. Can’t wait to see the others! Isn’t it funny how we couldn’t wait for color photography and color television…yet B&W photos are now so breathtaking.

    Beautiful! Black & white gives it a moodiness or drama, too.
