Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #45: Street Art

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -15 – Flowers

As you may have gathered I love processing floral images as well as Monochrome Photography.  However, some flower images just don't look right in Monochrome. But I was lucky with this image.  I think due to the simplicity of the…

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -14- Low Tide

  For this week's challenge, I thought I would process another boat image, taken at Hayling Island in Hampshire.  So for the challenge this week, it is anything to do with tides... it could be a photograph of high tide…

Photo for the Week – 28 – Winter

The challenge for this week is Winter.  Everywhere seems to have had snow... except here in the South East, we got one night of it.. and then by the morning it was gone.  So I have had to delve into…

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -13- Dining

On Monday for Photo For The Week Challenge I posted a coloured image of one of the interior rooms at Anglesey Abbey in Cambridgeshire.  I also processed it in monochrome and thought it would be a great image for the…

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -12- On the lake

Back in 2017, we spent a couple of days in the Lake District.  And was the scenery spectacular! With hills and lakes and woodland walks, it was an ideal place to take landscape photographs.  The above photograph is of Lakeside…

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -10 – Stately Homes

We are both members of the National Trust.. and one of the places I used to love visiting was Wakehurst Place.  However, they have now decided that car parking at Wakehurst would become hugely expensive with extortionate prices.  So we…

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM – 7 – Men at Work

  This week I thought I would process an image taken at Upnor Castle of the waxworks that are on display, showing men moving barrels.  Upnor castle is local to us and one of the places that is steeped in…

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Wonder

Wonder a feeling of amazement and admiration, caused by something beautiful, remarkable, or unfamiliar. There is nothing like the wonder of a new-born baby, their beauty, the love and admiration you have for this little person, who has just come…

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM – 6 – Whitstable Castle

I have been to Whitstable many times... to stroll along the beach, have coffee in the little cafe or just to visit the market that is sometimes on.  But it wasn't until 2013 that I read a road sign leading…

FOWC with Fandango — Illusion

Well, I don't if this image qualifies but for me, the illusion of this butterfly melting into the pattern is spellbinding especially in the monochrome version. Here is the coloured version. Butterfly is full of illusion with the moon reflecting…

Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM – 5 – Windsor Castle
