Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White…fountain

In the summer sun with blue skies, this fountain has the look of an abstract dandelion.  In black and white, it takes on a different look, although no less attractive.  Again I marvel at the ease of seeing how a color shot looks in black and white, accepting or rejecting, cropping, etc. with a digital camera or phone.

Although I’ll see many of you throughout the week, I want to wish everyone in the US a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.  Take some time each day to count your blessings.  There are so many.

Randy asked to see the original, so I’ll include it here.

  1. You clicked a water fountain with your mobile camera ?

    Love the movement of the water. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

  3. I love black and white photography, it captures so much more, or maybe it is because the eye can concentrate on the image rather than the colours. Hope you have a lovely peaceful Thanksgiving week, we do indeed have much to be thankful for. X

    • Thanks, Susan. Black and white can really highlight details that we might miss in color. It’s wonderful that it’s so easy to use both with digital photography. I don’t know if you celebrate Thanksgiving, but I know from your blog you have many things for which to be thankful!

  6. Janet, I send you warm wishes for a memorable holiday that does exactly what you recommend: have us focus on the good in our lives. Enjoyed the abstract qualities of your image. Happy Photo Challenge.

    This is a great shot Janet. I wouldn’t have guessed it was a fountain. Happy Thanksgiving.

  10. Amy says:

    That is a cool capture!

  11. bythebriny says:

    Very cool abstract.

  12. Beautiful both ways, but I have to admit that I think I like the original better. The cool blue just makes the water look so clean and refreshing.
