B&W 5 Day Challenge: Day 5 – Ropes and pins

Tenacious in the Atlantic Ocean

You didn’t think you’d get away without a tall ship photo, did you? 😉 This is a small sample of the ropes to be found on a barque-rigged tall ship.

This image is my Day 5 entry in the Black and White 5 Day Challenge. Jude of Travel Words (and other sites, all well worth a visit) has honoured me by inviting me to join in with this challenge.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

  1. On five consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
  2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun. This is where it gets tricky for me, as I don’t feel that I know five other bloggers well enough to invite them. So I’m going to twist Rule 2 and make it an open invitation — if you would like to join in, please do!

The challenge has been great fun, and I’ve enjoyed reworking a few photos in black and white. I hope you have enjoyed viewing them, too.

Back to Vanuatu for this one, a simple still life of a basket, a shell and a corrugated iron wall.

B&W 5 Day Challenge: Day 3 – Hibiscus by candlelight

Revisiting one of my favourite photo concepts: a flower and a candle. I love the subtle lighting effects of a candle in a dark room. A single tea light behind the hibiscus flower highlights the network of veins in the petals.

B&W 5 Day Challenge: Day 2 – A young girl in Vanuatu

I rarely take photos of people, but this young girl was irresistible. A group of tourists from my resort were lucky enough to be given a guided walk around the resort’s driver’s village. It was a fascinating glimpse into the life of ordinary people on the island.

B&W 5 Day Challenge: Day 1 – Spiders in Sneakers

I’ve opted for some whimsy for my first entry in the Black and White 5 Day Challenge. These little guys look like they’ve escaped from a 1950s’ B movie, perhaps called Attack of the Spiders in Sneakers!! To see a zoom of a spider’s face, click here.

(Six legs, antennae — okay, these are probably ants, not spiders. But “Ants in Sneakers” isn’t a very catchy title.)
