C&BW

I had to think about this particular challenge

I mean…. what kind of bench?

Parkpath BW.jpg

One on a path in a park ?

QuaysBW

Or Perhaps one by the water?

Decisions decisions…

eventually I took the decision to do both, both were taken in areas of my hometown, the first was taken with my Nikon in the green surroundings of the local park in Ordsall, in Salford, whilst the second saw me cross the Trafford Road, into Salford Quays.

When i saw this prompt from cees black and white challenge, I

expect you knew the response you see – It’s blooming

Autumn, they cried!

The weather’s bound to be bad,  said some we’re gearing up for winter

Hot climates moved back, said others, towards the equator…

Everyone’s thinking of heading where its currently Summer,

Relax – I said, enjoy the White Christmas!

A Simple leaf , on the tarmac and gravel of the car park of #BASIC, the brain and spinal injury centre in Salford.

Fallen by the wind, or the passing of time with the coming of autumn, this humble leaf gave me another chance to create something special.

Been messing around with the monochrome as i continue in the quest to master my new camera.  i like this image because of the silvery veins came popping out – all from the press of a button of my new camera.
