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?
