Cee’s Black and White Challenge – Favourite things / Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

This week, for Cee’s first Black & White challenge, we are asked to show our favourite things to photograph. My favourite things to photograph in black and white are numerous and varied….from old, abandoned, derelict, decayed, to the contrast of different trees in a wood, to shots with a figure entering or silhouetted against the scene, to shots of water. As abandoned is a theme for another week, I shall focus (pun intended!) on people silhouetted and the sea – then it becomes a double entry for Cee’s challenge and for this week’s WordPress challenge of Sea.

Regarding what the sea means to me, it is predominantly that rhythmic, gentle, mesmeric sound of the waves slapping on the shore, or the more thunderous, but no less rhythmic, sound of crashing waves. I love the smell of the sea. The different effects of light on the water.

Anyway, here goes –


  1. Your seascapes are beautiful! Thanks for submitting them.

  2. beautiful and dreamy, I want to walk right into that scene

    I’m inviting you to join us for Travel Photo Mondays, the link runs all week so I hope you can join us for the next installment?

  3. I agree with you Susan! I also love the sea. Too bad that this year I have not seen it!

  4. Such beautiful photos Sue. The black and white makes them so dramatic

    • Many thanks, Janaline. The odd thing is sometimes you think ‘I won’t get many comments on these’, and then you do. Other times you hope/expect to get a few and nothing! 🙂

  6. Very nice Sue, and I love your words regarding what the sea means to you. 🙂

  7. Good combo Sue, and lovely shots. Well done!

  9. Great shots, Sue, but when I compare them with your scintillating blue sky I want to inject the colour back into them. I really do prefer life in all its rich hues. (sorry 🙂 )
