Black & White Sunday Photo Challenge: Shape

Sometimes a photo challenge topic comes along and you know right away: I have a good example for that.

Here is my submission this week for Paula’s Lost in Translation Black & White Challenge: Shape.

My “shape” is a unique light fixture found in a downtown office building in Toronto. I titled it light spill because it looks like something that spilled on the floor – except this is looking up, not down.

Shades of Black and White

“Spring” is the loose theme for this series of images. All of these photographs were shot in the months of March and April, but they don’t have a lot of the characteristics of spring that you might expect to see.

The image of the women’s clothing store window includes two mannequins displaying the latest spring fashions for sale. Alas, all of the clothes were black and white, so there were no colours to start with – a “natural” for conversion to a monochrome image.

The shrub in the second image has been heavily pruned in anticipation of a new growing season. Lots of sunshine and interesting shadows on display – as well as some nice geometrical shaped. We just need some warmer weather to get the buds underway!

The candelabra is half empty and half full. A minimalist still life found in a church window.
