Thank you very much to Amy at “The World is a Book” for inviting me to join in the 5 day black and white challenge. Amy’s site has a great selection of beautiful photos taken from her travels around the world. She shares a great quote from Saint Augustine “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
There are two rules for this challenge. The first is to post a black and white image daily for 5 days and then to invite someone different to join each day. The first I can just about manage, but I’m going to do my own version of the second bit. Rather than invite someone to participate in the challenge, I will use each post to introduce a site, forum or challenge where I think that you will find some amazing black and white photos and photographers. Many will need no introduction and may be familiar to you already, but if you’re new to them and love monochrome, please follow the links and visit their sites.
Each week, Cee Neuner from Cee’s Photography, sets us a black and white challenge. I don’t know how she manages to think of so many different themes, but it is great that she does. Each week she features a selection of posts from the previous theme and gives us a list of upcoming themes, which is great as you can plan ahead. 🙂
This week’s theme is photographers and cameras. Sometimes I find that photographing people taking photos of an event is just as interesting as the event itself.
