Black and White 5 day Challenge

I’m not one for photo processing, tending to prefer a natural look in my photos.  I know they could all be greatly enhanced, but normally what I ‘see’ is what you get.  This week I succumbed and have been taking part in the Black and White 5 day Challenge, and I quite like some of the results.  My photo for Day 3 seemed to develop a life that it didn’t previously have when I converted it to black and white.

This is my entry for Day 4 and I like the bold lines of this composition in black and white.  All week I’ve been having fun with the question ‘Have you guessed where it is yet?’  I’m pretty sure this one gives it away.

I need to say thank you to Pommepal for suggesting that I might enjoy myself once I started to play.  She was right!  And thanks also to Wilbur’s Travels for nominating me.  If you don’t know these blogs, you’ll surely enjoy a visit.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

Today I’m inviting Yvette from Priorhouse Blog.  She’s only just back from visiting family and will be in a whirl ‘catching up’ around the blogs, but she’s a whizz at challenges and can turn her hand to anything.

I’ll be doing a round up of the challenge tomorrow, with my final photo for Day 5.  Thanks for tolerating this ‘intrusion’, Six Word-ers.  I hope you have a happy weekend, whatever the colour. As always, I’m off to visit Cate at Show My Face with my ‘six words’.

  1. stopped back by to tell you thanks for telling me about the bench photo challenge 🙂 Definitely going to check it out; thanks again 🙂

    betty

  2. All of the photo’s are lovely Jo! I especially like todays as it reminds me of 1950’s martian movie! 🙂

  3. I sneaked and read that it’s Barcelona! Can see it now…and should have guessed. I do love the way your photos look in B&W. Great job Jo, keep it up and have a super weekend 🙂

    1. Worn out already, Gillena 🙂 Zumba, then shopping and lugging it home against a strong wind. I’m going to curl up and be lazy this afternoon.

  4. Well done Jo, you certainly had us all guessing. Wow last day tomorrow for this challenge, doesn’t time fly when you are having fun… 🙂

  5. Yep, Barcelona is awesome, you could easily spend hours in Parc Guell alone. The classic city for looking up at the roof lines. I don’t usually do open top bus tours, but in Barca it is a must.

    1. Yes, I agree, Wilbur. I can also recommend one of the free walking tours. A lovely girl called Aleksandra took us in lots of nooks and crannies. 🙂

  6. Ah, Barcelona and Casa Batllo in Barcelona! So that other pic must have been from Barcelona too. Love the strong lines in this composition too, Jo! Good job! 🙂

    1. Correct, Cathy! 🙂 It was at the big museum up the hill. I forget its name now but you posted lots of photos in there, and stayed at that lovely boutique hotel. Happy days! 🙂 Thanks, hon.

      1. The big museum up the hill. I know exactly which one you’re talking about and I tried to go on my Europe blog to see the name, but my internet is so slow tonight, it’s taking forever. Oh how I loved Barcelona. 🙂 If I ever find it, I’ll pop back and let you know. Happy Sunday, Jo!

      2. Oh, the big museum up the hill… Oh yes, I know which one you mean, but I can’t remember the name. Tried to go on my Europe blog, but my internet is too slow. I’ll pop back by if I can find out the name. Happy Sunday, Jo!
