No rhyme or reason...

in Black And White11 months ago

Sometimes we take shots for no good reason
other than the fact we liked how it looked

(Isn't it always?)

A certain look, a certain something...
A mood, or ambience... something pleasant... it made you smile,
maybe the colour

Or it reminded us of something... something...
at the back of our minds.... we can't actually put a finger on it...

We just like it

Well, here in monochrome, colour isn't a factor
So, we are left with the other 'somethings'...

Texture mood angle composition


feathery soft
swaying in the breeze...
fields of summer


ripples... of reflection
one affects the other
dark water


raw wood
circles going round and round, cracks
stacked orderly


single flower
water droplets enhance
curves curved


stark startling
tippy tips
reaching out upwardly
seeking sunlight
against the dark

Love the first picture the soft texture, the blurred background with the grain standing in the forefront, beautiful contrast. I like your tippy tips 😂

😁😂 Thank you very much! I too liked the first for the softness...

I love your way of thinking and photography it is motivating me more with these great ideas a photo of nothing reason can also tell a story and look great nice work 👍

Awwww... thank you for your thoughtful words! Really appreciate it... I think it's this time when the world has gone topsy turvy, all the more "empty" thoughts seem more precious and meaningful... :) Have a good week ahead!

My pleasure @ackhoo as long as we don't go topsy and turvy a great week ahead also 😊

rejecting color ... bw photography allows you to look deeper into the essence of things...
