WPC: the world through my eyes

My world is often black and white, interspersed with grey tones, as I focus more and more on monochrome photography.

Monochrome can sometimes seem dull or even morbid, especially as cemeteries are a favourite topic but there is peace to be found here, and plants and even a wry outlook on life. As I lay me down to rest, the stones will stand…
Standing Stones: Not the best of shots – a windy, mostly overcast day but sunlight broke through to burn the top right corner which is not good. Nevertheless, I liked the slightly misty effect of the light in the long grass with daisies and also I learn a lot by studying these less than ideal captures!

Without colour, I aim  to improve focus on light, texture, composition and subject  -see Ming Thein’s ‘Viewing the world with a photographer’s eye‘. Roll over for captions and click to enlarge:-

For all that, people make the most interesting of subjects; their activities  raising questions in the viewer’s mind, as to what is going on. This is part of my world – the Chinese Community centre and the beginning and almost end of our sponsored walk around the parks of Central London yesterday.
