As is sometimes the case, I started considering the prompt and went off on a tangent. I decided that my contribution to the prompt would be a look back at a small selection of monochrome images from 2020.
Paper Birch trees again the sky. Taken on a walk around the neighborhood during lockdown a day or two into spring.
Backlit Maple leaves in early summer. Taken on another walk around the neighborhood.
Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise in autumn. There was a few mornings last autumn when the cloud cover made me shoot monochrome images.
A close up of some variegated Hosta leaves in summer. One of my favourites from 2020 and taken only a few yards from the back door on the side of the path between the deck and the car.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Fences and Gates prompt.
I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of a set of photos that date back 40 years to Christmas 1980.
I spent part of the Christmas holiday in a cottage near Silsden, West Yorkshire. One afternoon I set up a camera looking towards the nearest town and took a photo every 15 minutes as the sun set and darkness set in.
This is a monochrome conversion of a shot taken at dusk after the lights of the town came on.
