Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close ups

This week the topic is Close ups.  I’m looking for you to get close to your subject.  You can have macros, but they are not necessary for this challenge.  If you can get close to a huge ship and can only take part of it’s hull, that works for me or maybe get up close to your beloved pet.  Anything is acceptable, as long as you are close.  This is a topic you can really have enjoy.   Let’s see how creative you can get.  I’m looking forward to what you all decide to post.  I just want you to have some fun with your photography.

Upcoming Topics

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  For a great black and white photo look for contrast or highly textured subjects to photograph.

  • Looking through a Window
  • Words that end in “ock” (rock, dock, clock, hollyhock, gridlock, stock, unlock, wedlock, block)
  • Flowers
  • Ground: sand, dirt, paths, walks, trails
  • Shoes or Feet (human or animal)
  • Trains and Tracks

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

I hope you have FUN a lot of fun with this challenge.

  1. You are so reliable – I switched on the PC and hey presto! your challenge pops up. But more importantly, I can always rely on you publishing great photos. I really like the close-up of the hands. The dahlia looks 3-D!

  2. I took a photo of a squirrel while trying to climb on a bench out of fear. They’re weird little things. They race around, jump and who know where they’re going. LOL I like your photo of the squirrel but just the photo. : ) Nice selections, as always, Cee.
    Hope you enjoy my entries this week. Happy Thursday …

    • Hi Izzy. I’m sorry you don’t like squirrels. They can be a nuisance, but I still like them. Hope you have a wonderful week. 😀
