Duckman. – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Lawn Ornaments.

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Lawn Ornaments‘.

Where does Ornament stop and sculpture begin?  Does it depend on the size of the lawn? The size of the house?  This gnome like creature is pretty big, is it still an ornament?  An ornament is an accessory, article, or detail used to beautify the appearance of something to which it is added or of which it is a part, so I guess it is both.

A single Tulip – Weekly Photo Challenge : Simplicity

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:

This week our challenge is to photograph the simplicity of a scene which may mean making choices on what to leave out.

I love taking photos of flowers shooting slightly into the light and using a clear sky as a backdrop, though it is sometimes hard to isolate just one bloom.

And in Monochrome for perhaps an even simpler image, I cannot decide which I like best.
