Photo Challenge-Monthly-March B/W photos

March 9th- Think about things that are worthy of your praise, and then praise them. Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on earth. COLOSSIANS 3:2 NLT

Found a monthly meme that I like for Saturdays at
Cottage Days.

A Personal Photo Challenge 

I am always looking for blog parties that can help me hone my skills in photography.

This month theme is

This small bridge was built in the back of one of my neighbors yards and leads to a little grove of trees that their children like to play where they call their secret place.

The original photo does not give the same feeling of a hide-away as the b/w does.

 Linking up 

Join us for more photography fun.

Nice job!
Happy Weekend!

Jeanne said...

Well, I am a lover of bridges and roads and things that lead somewhere so the subject matter is special. The conversion to B&W completes it for me. Well done!

Vee said...

You're right. The black and white has a more mysterious feel to it.

Donna said...

That's a great example of how B&W can help to redefine and focus on the subject! The lines and texture of the bridge take command instead of the greenery! Thanks for participating, Peggy, and I'm glad you found the blog!

Brenda said...

Such a beautiful spot and captured wonderfully.

The bridge is just beautiful either way. But you really do see a lot of detail with the B & W effect! Enjoy your weekend!

Ann said...

I agree the black and white does portray the feeling much better. Nice shot

Hi Peggy
This has been a real learning curve to see if photos look better in colour or B&W. I like your bridge better in B&W, the focus is totally on it and the idea that it leads to a secret place makes it a special one.

S said...

Oh yes, the B&W strengthens the fact that the bridge is calling us to cross it.

I couldn't e-mail back a response to your post on my primary blog, so thought I'd pop in here and give you the answer. There is a list of upcoming challenge topics listed over on the sidebar of the challenge blog. I will be updating it monthly.
