You might have seen that I am taking daily photos on our walk on the beach. It just feels wonderful to start the day with a creative activity. Lately, I felt I wanted to do something more with them than just to share them on social media. So, today I decided to check out some photo challenges and remembered Cee’s Neuner’s blog. Many of my blog friends take part in her photo challenges. That is why I am joining them today.
Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge has topics for several weeks. I am joining in at week four with the topic “Week 4 Photo – black and white, mirror, air plane, power lines, etc.”. I chose one of the pictures I’ve taken a couple of days ago and I changed them with my phone’s effects into two black & white photos.
I am not quite sure what to think of them. I think I start taking more black & white photos for the next couple of days just as a challenge for myself. But here are my offerings:
This is the original photo. I chose it because it has the steam lines of several planes in the sky which fits with the plane topic.
The next one is made with the classic filter on my phone. It’s a Samsung S7 and I just love its camera.
And the next one is made with the Greyscale filter:
Looking at them now it might be the other way round.
I’ve forgotten how fun it is to take pictures in black and white mode. Definitely, need to play around with it.
Unfortunately, the sky does not come out as well as with the original colourful photo but I think the beach has its own charm in black and white. What do you think?
Here are Cee’s suggestions on how to take part:
- Then add a link to your blog in my comment box.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos and post, title your blog post “Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge” or “CFFC” tag.
- Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.
- I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.
