Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Things Found in a Kitchen

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things Found in a Kitchen.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of salt and pepper. For a black and white photo challenge salt and pepper seemed an obvious choice.

Taken with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open at f/1.2 and then heavily edited in Snapseed. I added film grain, some radial blur with a mild vignette centered around the black peppercorns and a Polaroid type border before doing the monochrome conversion where I added some more film grain.

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Indoor Walkways, Hallways, Elevators

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Indoor Walkways, Hallways, Elevators.

This is a hallway, or maybe it’s an indoor walkway. It’s part of a former small pox hospital that I documented before the buildings were demolished. I seem to recall that there were walkways connecting some of the wards but I’m not sure if this is one of them.

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Side on Squirrel

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Side of Things.

Having considered a variety of subjects for some reason this photo of a Grey Squirrel worked for me. It is actually an Eastern Gray Squirrel, native to eastern North America. The species was introduced to the U.K. where it has replaced the native Red Squirrel over most of the country.

As this individual was photographed in England it’s known as a Grey Squirrel.

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Anything with 1, 2 or 3 wheels

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Anything with 1, 2 or 3 wheels.

I decided to go with a photo from my archives taken on black and white film.

9 hours down, 15 to go. This is Team Bike at around midnight during the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race in France in 1982. The rear of the bike and rider is being illuminated by a following bike.

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Candid Photography (human or animal).

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Candid Photography (human or animal).

I had a few human photo ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the photos of Common Frogs taken in Cheshire in the 1980s. They got so used to me being around the garden pond that they would ignore me.
