Monochrome Monday: 4th October 2021

Monochrome Monday: 4th October 2021

Bluewater Park in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario in fog shortly after sunrise yesterday.

I had gone down to Colpoy’s Bay in light, patchy mist but fog descended before the sun came up so I started shooting with the intention of doing monochrome conversions.

I increased the image contrast when doing the monochrome conversion but didn’t want to go too far as I wanted to show the fog.

Drain the Colour

A couple of selective colour treatments for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Drain the Colour prompt.

I thought the mood of the two images made them ideal for draining the colour.

Yellow Lines.

Yellow parking bay lines at an abandoned grocery store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. The brightest part of this local eyesore is the yellow lines on the parking area.

Blue Banner.

A blue banner on High Street, Southampton, Ontario, Canada. A bright spot on a foggy morning.

Skate Out to the Picnic Table

This is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday challenge and to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things found on a picnic table or in a park prompt.

There’s nothing on this picnic table but it is in a park. Strangely, I’m writing this sitting in the same park using the WiFi hotspot as we have no internet connection at home.

Bright Rectangles

This is my first contribution to Becky’s April Squares on the theme of Bright. The post is a mix of April Squares and Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Bright Rectangles prompt as Becky is the guest host this week.

Some paving blocks brightly coloured with sidewalk chalks.

Bigger than a Bread Box

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Bigger than a Bread Box prompt.

This is a Citroen 2CV, also known as a Deux Chevaux (two horsepower). Launched in 1948 as a low cost, easy to maintain vehicle for farmers and others to take their produce to market. No doubt a few were used by bakers to take their bread to market.

The way the roof rolls back reminds me of the way some bread boxes open. I hadn’t noticed the picnic basket until editing the photo, bigger than a bread box and there could be bread in it.
