Black and White Photo Challenge

I have been most kindly invited by the folks at Forest Garden to participate in their Black and White Photo Challenge. I looked back through our family photo albums; the last B&W photos I took were in the mid 70’s. Forty years is a considerable gap. Nonetheless, I appreciate the kind remarks of the nice folks at Forest Garden and am willing to try. Here is my first offering.


The wall was part of a garden display at the Charlotte Spring Home and Garden Show in March. I was taken by the quality of the stone work, the relief, and the shadows.

      Thanks for the invitation. I’m not sure if I will be able to do five in a row, but will respond as the material presents itself. I will do four more to meet your expectations!

      • No pressure John… I this is entirely voluntary the fun of it is its own reward 😉 I think 5 is an arbitrary number- but allows for a little experimentation and refinement. I learn by doing, and learned bits and pieces along the way of doing these. My husband still grimaces when he sees me editing black and white pics- his clear strong preference is for color 😉
