K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s a pretty black and white affair this week on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, since the theme I picked was; Monochrome.

I thought I’d see what it would be like if I took black and white photos of something which I would usually be taking specifically for their colour; in this case, the garden, with a few bits of local architecture to add variety.

It’s amazing how the removal of colour helps you focus on the small details and contrasting textures, it was an interesting experiment.

K’lee will be throwing some shades of grey HERE later.

Now it’s your turn to get monochromatic, you know how to do it…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, asking you to get out among the public and do some; Street photography.

I’m choosing to include all public places in my interpretation of that term, focusing on candid, un-posed photos of people enjoying an afternoon drink in the sunshine of a pub garden. This kind of picture seems to capture a millisecond of life far better than any expensive, stiffly formal family portrait ever could and that’s what makes them so fascinating, I think.

I decided to go with all black and white images for this week’s post, with a little bit of extra digital fiddling for effect.

See what K’lee has in store HERE.

Now give us the fruits of your photographic labours.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee did the honours in picking the theme for today’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, choosing to send us searching for something; Written in stone, stonework and structures old and new.

Well I decided to go literal this week; Audrey and I passed one of my favourite graveyards when we were out for a bike ride in the gorgeous Spring sunshine yesterday, with plenty of writing in stone on show.

I also added another shot of this familiar renovation, thereby satisfying the old and new portion of the challenge.

K’lee will show you what he has set in stone HERE.

Now you can rock our world with your contributions.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee chose the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, picking one of his trademark “open to interpretation” prompts and encouraging us to capture; Pieces of a dream, in black and white.

Well, I think I’ve managed to meet K’lee’s brief with these four images.

Two are old favourites, to which I’ve added an extra layer of Twin Peaks-style black and white zigzags, reminiscent of The Black Lodge, the other two were made yesterday. Oh, and they all seem to contain eyes, I’m not sure why.

The new composite pictures were made from a landscape and a cloudscape, with elements of these four photos added to them.

So, here are my monochromatic dreamy offerings, I hope you like them.

You can see what K’lee dreamed up HERE.

But now let’s see what fantasies you captured for us.

Edit (19/07/18): I am adding an extra one, which I was mucking about with for this post and thought it fitted nicely with the prompt.
