Black and White 5 Day Challenge: #2

Shutters in Switzerland

I love photographing windows. I like architectural character, I love shutters especially those with peeling paint and I like reflections – here you can just about make out some ornate wrought-iron railings of the opposite balcony.

Pauline of Gypsy Life and Memories are made of this has invited me to join in with this challenge. If you don’t know Pauline (Pommepal) then you are missing a treat. Living in Australia Pauline is always on the move with her lovely Jack by her side.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

  1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
  2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

Today I would like to nominate Elizabeth Krall to join in. Of course this is only if you have the time and want to.

Elizabeth is an author, loves tall ship sailing, drinking cocktails, travel and is a great photographer. I think she’d be excellent with this challenge.

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. It is nice in colour – the colour is a very soft blue-green. I think the reflections and window frame are much more noticeable in the B&W.

  1. Hi Jude, Thank you very much for the invite! However, as you already seem to be aware, I don’t think I can manage a photo a day for five days (!). Also, I can’t think of five people I feel I know well enough to invite. But I am pleased you thought of me. 🙂
    BTW, great texture on those wooden shutters!

      1. Oh, that’s easier! 🙂 I can rustle up a few b&w over the weekend. In fact, I have a few hundred photos (and their RAW files) that I still need to process, so I have some ideas already. Thanks again for the invite!
