    Default Photo Challenge - Week of 12 February 2018 - Black & White Photography

    The intent: There are no real rules. Just grab any camera, any format, and take a photo (or as many as you like) this week and post it to this thread. My hopes are to foster friendly discussions on the subjects of photography as well as the content of the photographs as they relate to each week's challenge. The challenge this week is 'Black & White Photography'.

    Have fun. Use your imagination.

    Thin-skinned individuals need not apply, or are discussions to eschew critique? <wink, grin>

    OK, I'll kick in. I can't claim credit for the photo, although it was taken with my old Nikon. I gave the camera to Megg, to take some shots at the farewell party on Saturday night for my girlfriend's daughter.... who is off interstate to uni. It came back with some lovely images.... and, unfortunately, a no-longer working flash. Here's one that I've de-saturated.

    This one misses the week by a couple of days.... but seeing how entry one missed it by, ahem, four years.....

    It's B&W.... in the subject matter, at least. Magpie



    More from the party on Saturday

    There's always one, eh? His mother was called to come collect him.



    and on a nicer note

    And the home made lens that shot it.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    This week? Nah.

    I took a lovely B&W image of a Ferrari Testarossa and another of a special Ferrari that's worth well over double the TR's value yesterday, as I perused a mate's car collection.... but he doesn't want images posted. The ten cars in that garage were all special... all mouthwatering - and he's got another shed-full too.

    So.... given his request, I'll post an older one. A work colleague's AMG G63. The G was originally built for army use in the 70's... but they have a bit of a cult following. This one's got 563 hp and oodles of torque.

    Our 15 year old Kenmore clothes dryer gave up the ghost. This lead to yesterdays trip to the coin laundry. The nearest one I knew of was over in a Latin and African immigrant neighborhood. Clean little place for a public laundry that must be over 60 years old. New Whirlpool dryer will be here this afternoon. Really quick service from Lowes.

    Then an afternoon of fishing with a buddy at a local pond. Nothing much to report, a couple of sunfish and a couple of bluegills. But, it was a nice pretty day for February.

    Then over to a dive bar for a beer and a burger.

    Three photos from this afternoon. I don't think these are really particularly good, but I'll post them anyway.
