Poise and Do not disturb – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Cute Factor

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Cute Factor’.

I am biased, I think they are cute, but then they are our cats!  The first photo is of Roswell, he is not Grey but you know, he was named after the TV series.  And the second photo is of Falco, named after the main character in the Lindsay Davies books.

Speedy and water power – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Wheels

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Wheels’.

Well I thought I better go with the obvious for the first shot, some wheels on a car, all be it a very diminutive vehicle.

And secondly a lovely water wheel from New Abbey corn mill.

Meg’s smile – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Looks Like a Face

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Looks Like a Face’.

I always think that this profile of Long Meg looks like a face, in fact I think she would be rather at home in an episode of the Simpsons!

Stone, Wood and iron – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Fences and Gates

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Fences and Gates’.

Well I am not really sure if this counts as a fence, but both the woodwork and the ironwork look like fences, so I thought I would use this shot from the weekend.  We were at Lynton and this is some of the architectural detail on the town hall.

Wild fantasy – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Murals

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Murals’.

I don’t have many photos of Murals, street art, or graffiti, I must rectify this, get out with the camera and take some.

But here is a photo of a mural on a house wall at Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, a most remarkable place.

Not quite a selfie – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Isolated objects

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Isolated objects’.

So I am going to cheat a bit here because I like the photo, it was taken in 2009 by my wife.  I enjoy the isolated feel you get walking in the countryside, and I also enjoy the way the object – myself, has been isolated in this shot.  I also enjoy how much younger I look 10 years ago if I am honest :).

Dancing Stones – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Made by Humans

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Made by Humans’.

Well I thought I would have to use a picture of a stone circle, and what better to use than Stonehenge, not my personal favorite circle, but such an enigma, just how was it built by humans?
