Could today be any more different than yesterday? Deep azure blue skies, brilliant sunshine, and mild temperatures make the first full day of spring believable. And it is Saturday, to top it off. What a gorgeous day! This is the day when I would normally use color to show you the pastel shades of budding trees against the deeply blue sky.
On day 2 of our Black and White photography challenge, I’ll show you the scene in black and white, inviting you to fill in those gorgeous colors from your own memories. These photo show the view which greets us from our back deck, looking out towards the ravine.
Eliza invited me to join the challenge on Friday. Please do take a moment to see her post today, showing ice crystals in her garden. Eliza’s post is the third in her series.
I am inviting Sarah, of “anordinarymiracleday” to join the black and white photo challenge today. Sarah writes wonderfully inspiring posts about the tiny ordinary miracles she encounters each day. Sarah has an artist’s eye and takes lovely photos. I hope she will join the challenge!
The rules are quite simple:
- On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.
- Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.
Another view of our budding trees; a gorgeous sunny day in black and white:

Always good to find new ways of seeing.
Your Clematis post has me drooling. So beautiful 😉 May I challenge you to join the B&W photo challenge on Wednesday? Your photos are so lovely- I would love to see what you create in B&W Hugs, WG
Thank you 😉
Beautiful trees! This challenge has had a great effect on improving my appreciation of the monochromatic. One really sees things differently – the ‘bones’ of a photo really show up. Happy Sunday! 🙂
Thank you, Eliza- Please follow the link to Sarah’s blog on my post tomorrow- she offers some great insights on ‘the process’ 😉 Happy Sunday!
I did visit her as she kindly gave me a pingback. I thought her hydrangea marvelous. It is fun to watch the ripples of this challenge edge outward!
Yes- like a great net of interesting people woven together. It is actually a brilliant idea, and I would like to thank whoever originated the idea 😉
That might be a long line of blogs away. 😉 It would be interesting to follow it back however! 🙂
