Cee has these interesting photo challenges so I wanted to play again. A good excuse to take a long lunch break from my bring-home-the-bread projects. I’m not a master of anything in photography and even less so when I can’t hide imperfections in bright colors, but it’s always fun to play. I remember the old days when we used to develop black & white photos in a makeshift lab in our only bathroom. What a mess it was! But today we’ve gone all digital, and it’s like magic. Now color…poof…and now black and white 🙂
So here are three photos as my contribution on “small subjects” – in addition to the featured image of white palm flowers.
The child going for a swim here is definitely small compared to the vast ocean. Yeah, this is an old photo. I was young and he was only 4 at the time.
I heard this tiny bird sing at sunset time one evening when walking my dog Bumble. It had turned its little butt my way and was singing a beautiful evening serenade…unfortunately the tune didn’t stick to the image.
This is a picture of fog coming out from the ocean and rising fast. The whole landscape was covered in fog. The only thing I could see from my terrace was the rooftop of this 18-story condo building. Theoretically speaking a building is not a small object, but one could argue that the chimneys of the building are very small compared to the fog-covered 180 degree landscape. I was fascinated by the eerie fog enveloping everything that morning!
Now back to work. Boring.

I’m thrilled you got a break to add thee gorgeous black and whites photos to my challenge. Thanks so much1
Thanks Cee! Your challenges are very creative and FUN!
Love your choices and explanations. By the way, you’re still young. Just ask me, not your kids. 😉
Oh, I like that! You inspired me right now to write a post on “coming of age”…it will follow shortly 🙂
I’ll be looking for it!
I just love the fog picture. It’s stunning!
And the first black and white in the header looks like Birds of Paradise flowers. Is it? I love how they take on an almost architectural feel in black and white!
The fog was unreal, I’ve never seen anything like that! These flowers are “white bird of paradise” flowers which typically grow in a much taller palm-like tree than the orange/blue ones we see in flower arrangements. We have both here in the area.
Very cool! I’ve never seen any other than the orange ones!
Amazing pics, beautiful shades of black and white!
Thank you! I peeked into your photo blog as well, loved your images!
Get back to work young lady!! LOL, kidding of course. Wonderful photos in black/white. 🙂
I did go back to work for a few hours 🙂 Happy you liked my b/w experimentation.
That was a lovely small break from your big work project.
Yes, it was lovely! There are certain perks in being my own boss now 🙂
