Monthly Photo Theme Project – Black and White

It’s time to visit my Monthly Photo Theme Project again…

the theme for February is Black and White.

We had a little spring like weather on Valentine’s day so D and I headed off to the lake to take the cameras for a walk. There was a beautiful blue sky, a little ice left on the water, a few campers about, and more birds flying overhead than I could even begin to count.

I worked on capturing the blue sky and the sparkle of the ice but I did remember to  look for subjects that I felt would make a good black and white print.

Songs Of Silence -- 1/160 sec - f/10 - ISO 100 - 35mm

This sparse scene caught my eye as a potential black and white and I think that it works out nicely this way. After all besides the blue sky everything else here was already very monochrome.

Wish Me Luck!

Here I go…

In just a few days I will be heading off to my second photography competition.

These are the images that the judges will be scoring…

I Am King
Amber Wings At Rest
Summer Haze
Flaunt It

Only one of these have been reviewed previously; the other three have been sent off without the benefit of receiving input from those awesome KPPA Master Photographers.

Yep; just a bit nervous about that.

Wish me luck!
