Bench series #7

For the month of February let’s see your benches processed in Black and White

West Bay
West Bay Quay – Dorset

Tips for B&W photography.

If you would like to join in with the Bench photo challenge then please take a look at my Bench Series page. No complicated rules, just a bench and a camera required 🙂

  • Create your own post and title it Bench Series: February
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Add the tag ‘bench series’ so everyone can find the benches easily in the WP Reader
  • Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new bench theme comes out on the first Sunday in March

My Picks of the Week:

A bench swamped by students from Klara
Daily Musings pays tribute to a friend

Pauline is in Tasmania this week, which looks more like England than Oz
An unusual background in old Amsterdam
and a couple you really wouldn’t want to sit on at the moment in Norway from a new entrant, Amanda.
and for a warmer photo Gilly has a lovely example of lines, patterns and contrasts.

Thanks to everyone who has joined in with this challenge so far.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Jude, I had a hard time finding the individual bench posts – the sidebar menu takes me to the main page – and well, not sure if anyone else experienced that… but I finally found it by going to all of your posts and then scrolling – not too hard – and nice to see the posts I missed – lol – but just wanted to share that.

    and by the way – love the single benches you featured her e- never saw them so little – cute. 🙂 and cool contrast

    1. Thanks for that Yvette. The link to the bench posts is under the Photo Challenge Menu (and there is a note to that effect in the main page), but obviously this isn’t very clear. I’ll try and edit it over the weekend and make a link to the category.

      I set up a tag search in the WP Reader so I can track all posts (if tagged ‘bench series’) from anyone which makes it easier.

      1. oh thanks for that – I did not know about stag search either – 🙂 – and looking for the bench for a b & w was a nice thing to be on the hunt for this month – and I think your challenge this year is truly a good idea….
        have a nice weekend

        1. well guess what – I did find one and I will share the link with you. Also, need to share a reply to a comment I just wrote – lol – would like your feedback on it.

        2. well it just has to do with whether or not a bench can be a subject? I fixed this sheet, but I originally had the bench in the top photo and well, one comment I received (which was very good feedback too) but he did not think I had a subject….

  2. Brilliant ….. challenge – I don’t do B&W …. but I read who is the boss here. *laughing … you just tell them. Jo, sent me over here. Lovely.

      1. Thanks, I like the sound of that … but I have to do like JO did .. out and hunt benches. *smile – I will start tomorrow.
