Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Letters A or B

Cee's Photo Challenges

Elk Antler Elk Antler

This week the topic is Letters A or B.  This week I’m starting an alphabet series.  I’m doing two letters each week.  So you can choose a letter or use both letters. You can be creative with this topic.  I am eager to  see what everyone comes up with regarding this topic.   I just want you to have some fun with your photography.

NOTE:  I am now allowing desaturated colors in this challenge.  The color can be barely noticeable.  Just another slight twist to black and white.

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  For a great black and white photo look for contrast or highly textured subjects to photograph.

Feel free to dig around in your archives for photos if you don’t have anything new you can photograph.

Tourmaline .

cyw 2017 badge

The Color your World challenge will run January through April, for 120 days, with a new Crayola color topic posting each day. Join in daily, or post at your leisure.

Enter your photos, drawings, quotes, poems, stories, anything, as long as it is inspired by the color of the day.

Since this is a daily challenge, I will not have time to compile a link list daily for participant entries, however, (1) tag your post #cyw or #coloryourworld so others can follow along in the reader, (2) share your link in the comment section of each color post and (3) sign up on the home page. When you fill out the form on the home page, a link to your blog will be added at the bottom of that post – that way other participants can find all your challenge posts.

Photo prompt round-up -Bridge #writephoto

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Buxton, one sunny afternoon. The water runs crystal clear in the sunlight, fresh from the hills, meandering through a prim park, left over from the elegant heyday of the spa town. The shadows beneath the bridge were cool and seemed to hold secrets and I wondered how many lovers had met here…and how many less fortunate had called the arches home… and how many would see them as different instead of being joined by a common humanity.

More wonderful entries this week. Thank you to everyone who took part. Please click on the links below to visit all the posts and leave a comment for the author! A new prompt will be published later today and I will reblog as many as I can through the week… but given the volume of entries we are getting now, that will not…
