The challenge of the week is:
Look for a scene with great contrast that will make a great black and white.
I had this in mind when the challenge started so I started shooting pictures a bit early while doing other shootings. As a person keen on colorful stuff, it’s not that easy to think black and white; but I think I have managed to work on the topic a little bit and made a little pre-selection; also each picture has been given a name and is in the gallery.
The selected picture is “The end of the road trip”, a city landscape shot during a misadventure when the car engine started burning down. They say I am going too far with my bicycle activism :-). The good news is that no one was hurt and the insurance company took care of it.
Other than that, I have been playing with black and white transformation with many of my pictures, and decided to save a few of them after fiddling with the black and white mix.
Now I’m looking forward to the candy challenge.
