I am much in love with black and white photography and often use the monochrome setting on my camera. My small Lumix Panasonic ‘point and shoot’ camera used to produce the best results, the current small Canon not so good. The photos here are a mix of original monochrome and converted colour shots featuring various views of Townsend Meadow in different seasons.

I really like the first one and Bringing in the wheat harvest. Quite cinematic.
Many thanks, Manja.
Great black and white series Tish! I see you photograph/process in black and white/monochrome a lot. Your images are beautiful! Thanks for participating in this challenge.
Thanks for this week’s lovely challenge.
I really enjoy this monochrome series. Excellent choices, Tish!
Thank you, Amy. Glad these hit the spot.
Oh …the teasels are nice but then so are the clouds.
Those clouds are spectacular aren’t they. Aerial meringue!
I love the teasels. The first shot and the wheat make me think of the German paper cuttings: scherenschnitte (had to look that up as I didn’t remember it.)
Scherenschnitte! That is a word I would not remember either, Janet, especially the spelling. But I had a similiar idea about those particular shots. I have an artist friend who specialises in papercut imagery, so it was in my mind somewhere.
I had to look it up online as I couldn’t remember the word. Germans have such lovely long words that are other words just added together.
Like Fingerspitzengefühl 😍
German has some of the best words. 🙂
Your cloud shot is absolutely stunning Tish
Thanks, Su. Been thinking about you. Tx
I love BW photographs too! Thank you for sharing how you take your monochrome images – from the setting on your camera, as opposed to editing it into monochrome. It just occurs to me as well that monochrome is not quite the same as B&W, as some of your images demonstrate.
Your teasel image is so unusual & rather captivating.
Meant to ask: how is the work in your garden going?
Just beginning to eat some of it! Strawberries, raspberries, peas, potatoes, courgettes and lettuce. So v. happy. Thanks for asking 🙂
Construction of the shed all done?
Not yet. Nearly there. (It’s a greenhouse btw). Slight problem with glass, as in wrong size panes delivered!!
Ah yes, the greenhouse. For some strange reason, I remembered it as a shed – a greenhouse sounds a lot more complicated!!!! particularly if they’ve brought you wrong sized glass panes! Arghhhh!
Hoping the replacement glass is arriving today…
Thanks, Ju-Lyn. The teasels are my favourite too.
I, too, like monochrome. In a painting or a drawing, the easiest way to hide a defect is render in b&w
Ah, but you can also use it to reveal detail. I suppose it depends on the particular subject. Thinking of Durer drawings.
Oh yes, that’s possible too
Especially liked the harvest image Tish. Takes one back in time for just a moment!
Thanks, Tina. I agree it’s got a back-in-time feel.
Excellent choices Tish. I like silhouettes.
Many thanks, John. A fellow silhouette lover then.
Lovely images, Trish. B&W works very well and creates a special nostalgic mood. Hope you are well!
So happy that you think these images work, Dina. And yes we are well, thanks. All best wishes to you, Fab 4 of Cley.
