Sunday Post: Black and White

It’s Jake Day! and the theme is black and white. I like black and white but generally not when I try it.  My all time favourite photographer, the late James Ravilious, worked in black and white. He was a local man, here is a link to some of his photos. he captured everyday life in a period of great change.

My photo started life in colour and I quite like the change because of the different textures, including the sky. 

Hop over to for some more interpretations.

Ooh, WordPress has just told me that this is my 300th post!

And I have to add this photo for Jo Bryant!

  1. Congrats on you 300th post! 🙂 I love B&W photography, however I usually take the picture in colours and modify it later… Love your entry! I think I might want to join the Sunday Post too… Thanks for inspiring 🙂

  2. Nice! Of course, I don’t know what the color version looks like, but I suspect this photo may work better in grayscale – the lack of color allows you to focus on all those interesting, different textures.

  3. Great subject for this week theme Gilly , I`m proud to become your 300TH entry for the blogosphere and your work are truly great contribution, CONGRATULATION my friend 🙂

  4. Congratulations, GillyGee…on your 300th post!!!!!
    And the photos are awesome…you know, you are right…the B&W pics let us see the textures and character of the people or objects much better than with color. 🙂

  5. Awesome image, Gilly.
    300! That’s a lot of blogging. I’m only half way through. I might catch up ifyou let me. hehehehe! Congrats! You know how I love your blog. 😉

  6. I do like the sky in he first one but the photo with the trees looks really great in black and white. The shadows that have been created take on a mysterious look. The branches are sticking out are accentuated against the background sky. Well done, Gilly.
    Congratulations on 300 fabulous posts …!!!!

  7. 300th post! That’s awesome. And the photo for Jo is awesome. You two did a great job this week. Love the angle of the first shot. Adds to the drama.

  8. Great photos, both of them, Gilly! I like the simplicity of the house, especially the textures, as you say. They really “pop” in black and white.
    And congratulations on the 300th post! Those trees are a frightening way to celebrate, though. 😀

  9. How long did it take you to get to 300, Gilly? Congrats by the way. I’m just approaching the 100 mark in almost a year of blogging. Goes so quickly, doesn’t it?

I would love to hear from you . . .
