Black & White Sunday: my Workstation

This morning I left a comment on Paula’s blog after which she asked if I would be taking part in Black & White Sunday, so after a chance sight from my dining room window, I thought ‘why not?’. This week, the challenge is guest hosted by the Jagged Man, and he has chosen ‘my Workstation’ as the prompt.

My Workstation might be anywhere in my house, if I am using my iPad. Today, whilst using said iPad, I spotted some seed heads on the patioย –ย bright sunlight was illuminating them agains the white wall of the garage. So I ambled outside, took my shots, processed them using Silver Efex, and here we are:

  1. Seeds heads are quite photogenic, and I love your romantic take. Thank you for joining in, Sue. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Here we are indeed. The composition looks like something from a nineteenth century book of botanical art, and of course your take on the challenge is purely Sue.

  5. Good differential focus Sue. Worked well in B+W too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Beautiful photo! It looks vintage.

  7. It’s turning into a flower blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

    What a beautiful photo. I love the idea of a mobile workstation. This is a really good response to the challenge. I love the way you have thought ouside the square here.

    • Sue

      Glad you like this photograph – I visualised what I wanted, and it worked….these little things are only 1cm across. As to thinking outside the box, I used to have to do it in my working days…. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Thanks for taking part in the challenge and I love the seed heads. I have tried some in sepia and they were OK but you have inspired me to try them in B&W.

    • Sue

      Thanks, John, glad to be an inspiration! The trick is to make suRe you have a clear background as well, so the detail ‘pops’……

  10. These are gorgeous Sue – elegant composition!

  11. You’ve created a delicate depiction of a delicate flower.

  12. Perfectly delicate and very old sketch looking!!!

    • Sue

      They do look rather ‘old sketch’, don’t they! And that was exactly what I envisaged when I took the shot. Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. All this with an iPad? You mean I might turn into a photographer if I buy one? No- that would be too silly ๐Ÿ™‚ But seriously, it’s a beautiful effect, Sue, and I very much echo what Meg says about a botanical print.

  14. love the high key, white background you’ve chosen for these – exquisite!

  15. Like a 19th Century book treasured by Darwin
