Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close Ups


An old electric light fixture and lightbulb from the early 1900s.

This week’s topic is Close Ups.   Your close up or macro photo can be of the smallest of objects or to a close up of the trunk of a gigantic redwood tree or a part of a huge 747.  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 Telephones – new, cell, vintage, etc. challenge.  Please check out their posts, they are worthy of a second look.  ENJOY!

  1. These are wonderful. I especially like the bald eagle. He is so regal!

    Thank you, Cee, for featuring my blog. You are too kind!


      • How did you do that? It’s cool, but I may delete it. What you need to do is create your own post for the challenge and then just add the link in your comment. That is the easiest and quickest way to do it.
