Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Reflections and Shadows

For this week’s black and white challenge, we’ve been given the theme of Reflections and Shadows.

I don’t have much to say about these photos so I’m just gonna jump straight in with them… hope you enjoy 🙂

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: motor it!

My initial thought when reading this week’s challenge on “things with engines or motors” was to look for photos of cars. But there have recently been some challenges that featured cars so I needed to think a bit more out of the box.

Here’s what I found: 🙂

Tuk Tuks in Sri Lanka

Now for the dune buggying, I played around a little bit more and thought it looked good with more of a bronze feel to it – what do you think?

And my final entry was found when I was doing the post for the weekly photo challenge a couple of days ago – I thought it would fit perfectly for this challenge 🙂

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Humble abode(s)

I would love to be able to go out and take some photos specifically for this week’s theme on Houses because I’m sure I’d be able to get some lovely photos of the really over-the-top houses that we have here in Dubai… but I’m a bit restricted on time this weekend because I FLY TO USA ON SUNDAY MORNING and feel like I still have so much to do before getting to the airport.

Anyway, cut a long story short, I’ve delved into my archives a little bit (again, time restrictions so I’ve only gone through a few photos) and noticed that I don’t seem to have many photos of houses 😦

But the few that I’ve found seem to be pretty good so I hope you’ll enjoy 🙂

I’m not entirely convinced that the over-water villa photo looks great in black and white so I’ve also done it in sepia… let me know what you think? Which one looks better?
