Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Construction

Close up of one of the workers laying our slab last year.

This week’s topic is Construction.  My first thought on this topic was road construction but you can have any type of construction you want.  A person building a dog house to a skyscraper to making a road or repair of patch of asphalt.   So have fun with this topic and I look forward to seeing what all you bloggers come up with.   Use your imagination and creativity with this topic.  I hope you have a lot of fun with the topic.

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list at below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  Look for contrast or highly textured subjects to shoot.

Thank you everyone for your overwhelming enthusiasm for the challenge last week.  I’m proud to announce our featured bloggers from the Table and Chairs, seating of any kind challenge.  Please check out their posts, they are worthy of a second look.  ENJOY!
