Grey

Sunday 1st March

#CYW #Grey

A Dalek from doctor who on the side of the trafford side of the quays....sans color....in black and white

Gone is the colour from the photograph

Reds , blues and greens

Escaped from the page, and

Yet – the shades of black and white, make the image more definitive

Monochrome II

Ordsall Park, Salford in Monochrome (Image: Brian F Kirkham)

#Octpowrimo #Black #Cyw #Grey #Greyscale

A rainbow of colour bled dry

leaving more than fifty shades of grey

Night and day coming together

replacing colour with something a bit more definite

Challenge 30 – No3

Something in Colour and Black and white

Something B&W and in Colour….

Two things, my England Barbarians Top and My Imperial War Museum Fleece

The BaBa Rugby Shirt is Black and White, Whilst my Museum Fleece has had all the colour drained from it – it would be brilliant red if this were colour….

Both taken using Black and White Monochrome mode with my Trusty old Nikon Camera with 50mm lens

The colour seeped out of the image

as the dial on the camera was turned

in seconds, pastel colours turned into shades of grey

as the metallic silver objects shined

Gremlins in the Machine

Gremlins

Salford, 23rd November 2017

Gremlin n. a cause of unexplained malfunction

ever get one of those days when nothing goes right ?

Thursday evening – and i’m going through the snaps i took with the D3100 the other day.DSC_0120.JPG

Now take a look, this is how my dear computer judges what my camera thinks my outside lawn looks like.  It could be it was fooled by the Manchester weather, and in its defence it was throwing down stairrods when i took the pic.  But then again, i have been confined to the house the last few days – thanks to a bug i picked up (don’t worry – the cold remedy has worked)

Now before it throws another strop – here’s evidence for the prosecution – it worked perfectly well when i was doing my black and white shots in the kitchen.

Kettle

and it liked the pics of the spoons

Silverspoons

It even liked the black and white shot i took of the Coffee, Sugar and Tea Jugs

Coffeeteasugar

So i’m starting to think – my poor old camera has caught a cold (sic)

Or that the gremlin that lives on my computer (hereby known as the update wizard) has attacked my computers ability to work out colour!

Sepia

#CYW #Coloryourworld #Sepia

The black and white photograph

had a little colour added to it

to give it a little age

when it rose from the

industrial printer – rather than 21st century

the 1800s came calling…with each layer

of sepia contained – from pink to brown
