Cee’s topic this week is birds. As selective colour is permitted – and, I think, really works in this case – here is an owl (I’m afraid I cannot remember what kind).
The plumage is black and white in any case, so all I had to do was desaturate the greens in the background. Those orange irises are really very striking.

Cee’s theme for her ‘Black & White Photo Challenge’ this week is 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.

The theme 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.

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.
