Below Deck

IMG_7308

For this week’s Black and White Challenge, our marching orders are to use any B&W photo taken in the last week or two, if not otherwise shot today. Since I didn’t have anything even remotely usable, I headed out to the backyard with my Canon in hand to see what I could see.

I’m drawn to photos of the mundane and this shot of a downturned wheelbarrow beneath our deck adequately fills the bill. What I really like about this is how the light is filtered via the slats between the deck boards throwing ever so subtle shadows in a soldierly formation of sorts.

Award-winning? Most certainly not but I was happy with the results and isn’t that the point of photography after all?

    • Thanks Martha. B&W is a challenge for me since I’m only relying on the monotone setting of my camera. Need to add ‘Master PhotoShop’ to my bucket list!!! 🙂

  1. You have a good eye Julie. This perfect for a B&W challenge. I always feel like I’m cheating when I change a colour photo over. I love all the lines and light in this scene, offset by the curves on the wheelbarrow. Lovely.
