Light trails in the rain at night cut a curving line of white through the city darkness, where monochrome shades of grey hold the image together far more completely than the full colour version 🙂
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week asks for something you make use of every day, so I wanted to find something a bit different…
This is my un-emptied kitchen sink washing up water sitting in a grey plastic basin, surface vibrating gently as the washing machine underneath the counter was building up to its fast spin. I grabbed my phone and captured the shapes made, and was really happy with the effect!
Definitely something I use every day – well, not the same water, obviously, but the basin remains the same 🙂
Cee and Dan have joined forces this week for a Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Doors and Drawers and Thursday Doors combination, so here is my contribution in the shape of our vintage up-cycled Ercol oak dresser with its two drawers and two cupboard doors.
Incidentally, our dresser has a really simple catch to open/ close the doors – the little elongated knob in the middle moves side to side just a small amount (inset within its own little groove), just enough to allow each door to open (one at a time), and when in its central position it holds both doors neatly closed – no metalwork or magnets or anything more than a beautifully carved wooden catch, proudly visible for everyone to see.
See images below for details 🙂
New shoes for Cee’s B&W Challenge: Shoes, Boots, Slippers this week 🙂
Cee’s Black and White Challenge this week asks for unusual perspectives, so here’s a distorted view of my living room as seen through the bottom of a drinking glass 🙂
At this time of year it can still be slightly dark when I walk to work – this was taken the other morning on the footbridge crossing the River Ness. I love the semi-silhouette of the skyline, the greys and whites of the sky and water, and the different blacks of the buildings. Even in full colour there’s a calming monochrome quality to the view…
Sorry it’s not a better image of the raindrops on the bus top deck front window and the sun shimmering on the wet road at the bus stop outside Inverness Airport the other day – I only had my phone with me, an it’s really not a great camera in dodgy light, but I kind of like the moody, broody atmosphere created in this shot 🙂
Half a building for this week’s Cee’s B&W Challenge 🙂
Boats, slow, rocks, and road for this week’s Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – and I was in the mood for monochrome, with three ‘O’s in the middle, so I hope you like them! 🙂
