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

It’s certainly easy to try a photo in black and white when shooting digital!  Some photos don’t need much help, though, as in these reflections I found one cold morning on the river.  This reminds me of something the Impressionists might have done had they not worked in color.

  1. Janet, good morning, a lovely and serene capture, and its moodiness reflects human emotions. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Thanks very much, Sally. It’s a B&W day here today with plenty of rain. At least it’s rain now. When I went to the health club this morning, it was hovering between ice and rain, not a problem on the roads, but a bit hazardous when walking. Happy Monday.

    That is definitely Monet, sans color. Very moody! Delightful!
    We here in the Sierra, CA foothills are fogged in so I can’t see much but what I do is very fuzzy and unreal looking!!!

    • Fog makes from some wonderful shots, Lenore. I’m so glad California is getting plenty (perhaps at times, too much) rain and snow now. Time for the drought to be over or at least to make inroads on it. Glad you liked the shot and thanks for commenting.

    That’s really beautiful, Janet.

    ooh, I never thought of Monet in black and white!! Wonderful!

  5. Lena says:

    Black and white is really fun and challenging to work with. Great reflection!

    • Lena, this one was easy to imagine as the morning was grey and the shot just B&W on its own. 🙂 Some shots look better (or at least amazing) in B&W, while others lose what makes them special. Glad you liked this one.

  6. Lovely, Janet. Winter landscapes in black and white are some of my favorite things.

  7. Very painterly and impressionistic!

  8. bythebriny says:

    Yes, it’s very impressionistic — nicely seen and captured.

  9. marianallen says:

    I love black and white photography! As director Wim Wenders said, “It shows the shape of things.” Even when the shape is wobbly and amorphous!

  10. Jane Lurie says:

    Well done, Janet, and terrific in monochrome.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
