Featured Bloggers


Drawing with Light – Some fabulous photos.  I really like her first shot of a stack of rocks.

Monochrome – I enjoy the layers of rock on top, then the not so distinct layers on the bottom.  Great photo.

Damiology – This is such a cool closeup of a rock. I like the perspective.  Can you find the fly?  I did not.

Mama Cormier – Beach rocks seemed to be a popular choice for rocks, she has some great shots, but I really like her third shot of a rock.  I like all the lines and textures.

James Collett Photography – His photo depicts a beautiful serene bay.

This week’s topic is What Is Beautiful to You.

The world is literally at your disposal this week.  What do you find beautiful, a flower, a new born baby, animals, a fancy meal, your spouse, our kids, a landscape.  Use your imagination and creativity with this topic.  I hope you have a lot of fun with the topic.

Upcoming Topics

  • Shadows or Reflections
  • Toys for kids or adults
  • Patterns
  • Walk 100 Steps or less and take new photos
  • Shoes or Feet

This challenge accepts the following types of photography:

  • Black and white photography
  • Sepia tones (browns)
  • Selective color with the majority of the photo being in black and white.

Hopefully you will have a lot of fun with this challenge and find your creative eye will be expanded.  Here are a couple tips and tricks posts I have done specifically for black and white photography.

ENJOY and have FUN.
