Last week I posted this photo in colour. Several people wondered whether it would be better in black and white or a with a sepia tint. I wondered that myself, so here it is using a sepia effect to ‘age’ the photo. What’s your preference?
There are lots of ways to interpret this challenge and I have used mirror reflections such as images reflected in an actual mirror; shiny metallic objects; glass and probably the most common – reflections in water – before.
But yesterday I was fortunate to be able to visit the famous Beth Chatto Gardens in Essex and although she is best known for her gravel garden, there is a lot more to see including the lovely feature pools.
Following on from Paula’s challenge last week which was all about lines, the WP challenge this week is about curves. Curves and lines are important ways in which to compose an image, and draw the viewer in. Curves are also fun to photograph.
A curvaceous entrance in to the walled garden leads you to all sorts of curves
Outside the walled garden is a pathway lined with mounds of neatly clipped yew
and a very curvy bird bath

Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is brought to us by her guest blogger Lisa Dorenfest who is currently living in Sydney, Australia. Not for much longer it seems. Her challenge is One.
Taken today in Trengwainton Gardens, Madron, Cornwall.
