This weeks theme is a personal favorite of mine. Black and white imagery has a way of telling a story that just cannot be done with color. When we remove the distractions of the red, blues and yellows, we often start to see more details and emotions that we didn’t see before. Color certainty has it’s place in art and photography but nothing captures emotion and depth better than a black and white image.
From the image I created below you can tell I’ve been in a bit of a contemplative mood and I wanted to express that feeling in my work this week. I’ve always enjoyed being by the water so I thought the lake at Netherwood would be a nice spot for a picture.
Below are some fantastic shots from others that are doing the challenge along with me you can view more on our group Flickr page.
Next weeks challenge is ‘Shapes’. I found an interesting article in relation to the this theme that I though I would share:
