Photographic paper

Cee’s theme for her ‘Black & White Photo Challenge’ this week isĀ  a ‘view from the side’. This almost abstract image is, in fact, a view of the edges (‘sides’, if you will) of a number of recently manufactured sheets of paper, made according to traditional methods at the Moulin du Got paper mill.

Ladder

The themeĀ  for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is ‘Shadows’. This is the top of a ladder which allows sailors to step down into their boats from the jetty at Saint Andrews harbour, in Scotland. The low, bright sunlight casts strong shadows on and from the freshly painted metalwork – too red not to apply some selective colour to the image.

Pollination

For the past week or so our ceanothus bush has been a-buzz with flying insects, including this large black beetle.

Nice to use a little selective colour for a change too.
