Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for Black or Grey. Black is not a colour at all. Theoretically it is the absence of all colour. Yet black is distinctive. Lines are bolder, shadows deeper, colours brighter against a black background.

This month is not about creating black and white photographs, but in finding the true blacks or greys in a colourful world.

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. Looks like miss-matched earrings are a thing this season. I don’t know how you get the sheep to look at you like that. They typically run away any time I get close… but I may look scarier than you!
