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.

Monochrome Monday: 16th September 2019

Monochrome Monday travels back just over a week when I headed down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise.

With thick cloud over much of Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment I realised that there wasn’t going to be much colour in the sky. So I shot with the intention of doing monochrome conversions of some of the shots.

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.

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Signs.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Signs.

It’s 12 months since I photographed these EMPTY signs and I still find it amusing that some of my neighbours are letting our Black Bears know that there’s no garbage in the cans.

These are Bear resistant garbage cans bolted to a cement pad to stop the Bears rolling them over. And yes, I know that the signs aren’t really for the Bears. They wouldn’t be able to read the signs in the dark at night.

Monochrome Monday: 2nd September 2019

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to my first outing with the Samyang 12mm lens.

This group of Coneflowers was quite colourful but I thought that the shapes and features of the flowers would make an interesting monochrome conversion. I went with a high key edit which seems to focus attention on the centres of the Coneflowers.
