Photography Challenge: Grayscale


For this week’s installment of the photography challenge, I experimented with the black and white setting on my camera.  As much as I love playing with color, the stark lines created by black and white photography stir my soul.  Three of the prompts on the challenge list fit my inspiration to view the world without color.

Prompt: Capture something in black and white

It’s been years since I’ve looked closely at a lantern I keep on my fireplace mantle.  Every evening this beautiful pattern illuminates when a flameless candle switches on for the night.

Prompt: Capture contrast

These trees are in my neighbor’s yard, but I never noticed the beautiful silhouette they create at sunset until I pointed my camera at them.

Prompt: Capture the light

For this shot I was inspired by how the shadows created by light looked like rays of sunshine.
