Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

Licking the bowlThis week’s challenge is to have a tangible object in your photo as┬áboth the inspiration and subject of the photo. I do a lot of cooking and baking (a lot), and my husband is a big fan of licking the bowl/spoon/scraper/whatever, especially if there’s any kind of batter involved. For this challenge, I picked my favorite scraper as my object. The fact that my husband is attached to it is part and parcel of selecting it for my photo.

And just for kicks and giggles, here’s another one in black and white. Let me know which one you like better.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Transportation

London bus signAs soon as I saw this one coming up, I knew the picture I had to post. This bus made us laugh so hard for a very long time. And it still does. And even 10 years later, it’s probably still true.


Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Close Ups/Macros

Up-close moth (black & white)

I just found this photo challenge. Black and white is challenging in the digital photography world. Traditional film b&w photography used a special type of film to enhance the contrast. I’m sure we all thought that colorizing old classic movies was a fun idea, but the execution wasn’t as cool as we hoped, because b&w really is a completely different medium from color. To get a somewhat close effect of true b&w, I bumped up both the contrast and saturation on this to the maximum before applying grayscale.
