This week Paula’s asks us to show her a black & white photo and the colour original from which is has been converted.  This is another ‘over the garden fence and across the field’ shot – sundowner foxgloves and corn cockle seed heads.


Black & White Sunday

  1. The mood is quite different. I love towering plants. I thought you had to go belly down but then I read it is one of those over the fence photos. Nice work, Tish. Thank you very much.

    1. One wonders how that happens, Janet – the colour version lacking the same atmosphere. It must say something about the way our perception receptors function – the b & w somehow conveying more information/subtlety/shades of meaning. And yes, we are promised heat, though today seems v. autumnal in Shropshire. And dull.

  2. I like them both. 🙂 Just read a fiction book you might find interesting, Tish, about elephant, rhino poaching and corruption in Kenya : “White Bone”, by Ridley Pearson. He’s pledging 20% of any royalties or monies from film right to supporting those who work to stop poaching and lists some groups he worked with and knows to be good.


  3. Something I almost never do but I love the result in this case, Tish. High drama! 🙂 There have been some lovely cloud formations lately. I’m amassing a few. For a rainy day 🙂

    1. Yes, there’s definitely much interesting activity in the sky these days. Cloud watching could become my profession. I don’t know if it’s my age, and I’m noticing the sky more, or whether things are truly going on up there as never before.

  4. B & W has an element of intensity to it that makes me pay attention. Perhaps it is because I cannot see all the detail int he shadows and so I am more alert to the whole.

    1. That’s an interesting take, Claudette – the raised alertness. Making me think of all those stunning old Film Noir movies. They would lose their edge in colour, and the shadows put us on our mettle.
