Yep, this is me. Or, at least reflections of me! Both the shiny vehicle door and the curve above the wheel well turned out to be mirrors for my dual image self portrait.

These buildings are my downtown city landmarks. I infrequently post black and white photos because I love color. However, I was inspired by the buildings theme of Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge this week and I believe B&W is perfect for these strong buildings. Thanks for the inspiration, Cee!
I will also add these to Jacqueline’s Echoes of my Neighborhood challenge which I noticed when I viewed Kat’s very cool like mercury colliding blog post. It’s nice to take a look around the corner and see the world.
I had to stop and read these signs when I spotted the jaunty display. The messages may make you smile or chuckle. Happy reading!

Soar above it all. Stay above the fray. Leave strife in the distance. Hope for calmer days.
Here is my entry for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge with the theme of things that fly, from birds to airplanes. By changing the sky from blue to gray, I think that the photo now seems like it is from another time. I feel like I have stepped into the past.
Dim Haiku (Eigengrau)
Darkness of nightfall
Squinting eyes for clarity
Grateful for first light
At first, I thought Eigengrau was just the color black. But, Jennifer Nichole Wells clarified the color as intrinsic grey, as defined above, for her One Word Photo Challenge this week. So, I started thinking about what I could photograph that suggested night and darkness. When I saw this lamp, it seemed like a good subject.
If you look at the bottom section of the picture, you can just see the outline of the lamp fixture against the dark landscape. I was inspired by Jennifer’s take on the challenge where you can just see the outlines of a familiar landscape in the darkness.
Have a good night, everybody!
Light Tanka (Reaching)
Light enters darkness
Reaching into the shadows
Stretching to corners
As dimness lies cowering
Knowing lightness will prevail
This photo is for the Five Days Challenge that I have been invited to participate in by terryb at through the lens of my life.. The challenge is to post five photos, one per day, for five days and write a story to go along with each photo. The story can be fiction or non-fiction. It can be a short paragraph, a page or a poem. Each day I am to select another person to carry on the challenge.
Today, I would like to invite Barbara at Silver in the Barn. It is not mandatory and you can decline. If this is not the right time or you have already participated, I certainly understand.
Dark Babel Haiku (Tower)
The language of confusion
Spoken by many
Talking but not listening
(Re-entering the Photo101 Rehab clinic with this black and white photo)
Today is the last day of Lucile’s Photo101Rehab clinic unless she decides to keep it open. For this photo I used a spare shot from the Photo101 Light assignment and applied a polarize filter to heat up the warm golden and deep blue colors.
And since I have a new fondness for black & white photography, I had to try it out with a mono filter. It seems more dramatic.
I can’t decide which I like better. Which presentation speaks to you?
