Black and White – Part 2

With this weeks Theme of Black And white I tried to find images that have texture ..I love the complex simplicity of Black and white and how it strips photos of space and time …let us focus on the objects and lets the simple textures come to the front using just light and dark shades …

Back to the roots of photography before colour came about ..

Local Heath Stroll

Last week, Richard and I decided to venture up into the quiet corners of the local Hampstead Heath to take some photos of the snow before it melted.  The first few hours were very tranquil as we walked with muffled steps through the snow-covered forest, capturing photos of cheeky red-breasted robins, frozen ponds, and the over-enthusiastic joggers or a cross-country skier.  Our outing concluded with the energetic display of two adventure seekers, impeded from their Swiss skiing holiday because of the turmoil at the airports, they had to make-do with a self-constructed ski ramp in front of the English Heritage Kenwood House.  If you’re going to jump, jump with class; yet crash with style!
