Playing with black and white

Sunday 3rd December to Saturday 9th September 2017

Before you get too worried if you’re not a fan of black and white, there are colour photos in here too, but this week I have been watching a course on black and white photography on Lynda.com so have been practicing.

The first photo is in colour, though, and is of a piece of bark which caught my eye when Teddy and I walked on Canford Heath on Sunday afternoon.

Up on South Walk Teddy was posing for me.

He even sat down – something that’s very rare.

As usual, though, it was only as a prelude to lying down, as you can see (he didn’t even want to play with the little cockerpoo).

A few minutes later we met our friend John and his dog Eddie, and while we talked I took photos of the view.

When I turned around, though, this was the sight that greeted me.

Rainbow

Later as we walked across the heath the sun was setting behind the trees.

And so onto some black and white photos (I’ve not shared all of them – there are a few more on Flickr). These trees are along the path as we head towards the old pit.

And here’s Teddy on the heath.

On Friday we were on Upton Heath, and I was taken by the long shadows from the trees and old concrete structure along what was once the railway line.

And now it’s back to colour for the silver birch grove on a cold morning.

Autumn colours were in evidence along the Roman Road, though.

And one last photo – another rainbow. This time taken as we headed for the heath.

Not a bad start to December.
