My contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Flower of Any Kind.
With Thursday afternoon warm and sunny I went for a short walk looking for an image for this challenge. With being on crutches and having limited mobility in the right shoulder I’m having trouble framing and composing as accurately as I would like.
I spotted this solitary Dandelion growing in a small patch of dirt trapped in a boulder. It was a mostly monochrome image apart from the Dandelion so I did a selective colour treatment to remove a little more of the colour.
My contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge – Plastic Fantastic.
The challenge got me thinking about what plastics are used for nowadays. That got me thinking about my 12 year old Olympus E-410, a lightweight, plastic bodied DSLR. It was the base model when I purchased it in 2007 but I still use it. I decided to go with a selection of photos taken with it over the past 12 months.

Monochrome Monday is going back to last autumn and a visit to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
I was photographing the boulders that surround Dominion Lookout at the bottom of High Street. I isolated this boulder because of the multiple white quartz lines running through it as I thought I would make an interesting monochrome conversion.
Or just a boulder hiding in a ditch?
One Word Sunday.
Week 46 was mostly thick cloud with frequent snow flurries. I was shooting with the idea of doing a monochrome conversion with poor light and little colour each time I got out with the camera.
I was down at Colpoy’s Bay on Sunday afternoon. As I walked back along the shoreline I noticed the orange and grey Lichen on a partially snow covered boulder. The similarity of the texture of the Lichen and the snow caught my attention as much as the splash of colour.
Today’s Daily Post one word prompt is Quartet.
Actually it was the green moss that caught my eye rather than the Maple leaves. The moss is on a boulder in woodland and the green was almost fluorescent in the low light amongst the trees.
