The Black and White Photography Project: Gruffalo

Gruffal - silent movie

If you go down to the woods today… etc. I like the way black and white makes this shot look like a still from a silent movie. It was taken last weekend on a little family outing to Alice Holt Forest.

Black and White Photography Project: Camera Grab!

JJ camera grab

Mucking around in the car today I took a few shots of the boys through the backs of the drivers and passenger seats and they thought it would be funny to try and grab at the camera. I like the way their little faces come into sharp focus in the background and they work well in black and white!

Black and White Photography Project: paper birds

B&W paper birds

This is an old one – I took it the last time we visited the Polka Theatre in Wimbledon and I was left to admire all the innovative kid-friendly decorations, book corner, dressing up corner, colouring corner… One ceiling had the bottom of a rocket disappearing into the ceiling as if into space. This was the corridor which had twinkly fairy lights above and lots of little framed doorways down below, which, when opened, revealed various scenes from Alice in Wonderland – one of their productions.

Anyway, I just thought these little birds lent themselves to b&w!

The Black and White Photography Project: Love…

Love

There aren’t many things worthy of being photographed in my house, much as I would like there to be. This little sign was a gift a while back from my sister and I think it’s really cute. It also looks fab in black and white!

The Black and White Photography Project: the Keep

Arundel Keep

I took this picture last Tuesday when the hubster and I visited Arundel castle. This is a view across the medieval Keep and I love the moodiness with the clouds. I have added  a Daguerrotype filter which just seemed to make everything more dramatic…

The Black and White Photography Project:

Unknown bird

I took this picture at the Living Coasts attraction in Torquay last week whilst we were on holiday. There was a huge net over the top of the whole place so the birds inside were brought in specially but still I don’t know what make brand breed it is. It definitely makes for a dramatic black and white photo though. I’ve put a ‘film stock’ filter on it which makes it even bolder.

View into Anstey’s Cove: B&W Photography Project

JJ Anstey's Cove

While we were away in Devon we discovered this little cove which was walking distance from where we were staying. A couple of memorable things happened whilst we were there including JJ bashing up his knee wading between rocks, EJ covering himself from head to foot in chocolate ice cream and a bit of a stone chucking marathon by EJ who seems to love chucking stuff more than anything else!

I caught this pic of JJ looking out to sea contemplatively and it comes across really quite mean and moody in black and white I think.
