52 Week Photography Challenge – Week 3: Artistic -Red

For Week 3 the challenge was to “Shoot whatever inspires you. Red should be the focus of the image. Don’t be afraid to be creative.”

Technically, red is not the entire focus of my image. But I decided to take the artistic licence with this one. There is red and there is a part of the image with red in focus. 🙂 This is probably one of my favorite images I ever took.


Next week in Dogwoods challenge brings us to Portrait: Headshot – You shot a selfie, now shoot a selfie of someone else. Me being clairvoyant, I can see Berta as my victim. Everyone I asked refused to pose for me, so I must take an unwilling subject under my control.

Unless I manage to hypnotize some unexpected human soul…

P.S. Does anyone else finds annoying these WordPress changes, it was so much easier to create new or find old posts before. :/


Winter Light

Welcome to another Monochrome Madness Tuesday. I am continuing to experiment with light, this time it is a natural light. The original image was almost monochrome, so there was really nothing much to do. I enjoy these kind of images, where I have what I need from the start.

WInter is the perfect time to take some indoor images in my house, because it is the period with the most light. Being surronded by trees is lovely, save for two things…lack of natural light from March to October…and abundance of spiders. This year they picked out my home for their winter resort, I really don’t know where they are coming from.


I must admit this experimenting with light makes me look at this monocrhome challenge quite differently. There are so many possibilites, only if you use a little bit of your imagination.

What to do…

…When there is no inspiration for the title? I just can’t figure it out. Nothing comes to mind. Oh well, I’ll leave it this way.

This is my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge. Few weeks ago I had some fun taking photos of my jewelry and thought some of those would look good in b&w.


Leanne Cole hosts this fun challenge and you can check more monochrome images on her blog Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY. If you want to join us in our weekly fun, you’ll find all the necessary details there too.

Wow, really no inspiration today…This is the shortest post in a long time, but maybe that is a good thing?
