Black and White 5 Day Challenge: #5


My final entry for this 5 day challenge is yet another from the plant world. I’m not keen on flowers processed in black and white as I believe the colour is an integral part of the attraction of a flower. But some plants, especially cacti and succulents, have a very strong structure and this can be highlighted in black and white. Today I have used a lithograph technique on this very spiky “agave flexispina” (Mexico).

(Compare with the colour version)

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 Schelley to join in. Of course this is only if you have the time and want to.

Schelley Cassidy Photography ran a fabulous challenge last year called “What is it” where she stumped her followers week after week with unusual shots of ordinary objects. She now posts a variety of images including beautiful macro photography. I haven’t seen her do much black and white processing so here’s a challenge I hope she’ll take up.
