The B&W Photography Project | Week #13

October 5, 2014

Thank you to everyone that joined in with the Black and White Photography Project over the past few days.

This week is a bit of an experiment – translating a photograph that is wonderful in colour to monochrome. I love all the reflections although the effect has made a beautiful location look rather eerie! Painshill Park in Surrey is an incredible place to visit, it’s awash with follies including the amazing crystal grotto you see above. You can check out the colour version on Instagram.

How to join in 

To join in with the Black & White Photography Project, just link up a short post, with or without words, featuring a black and white photograph. You can link up a collection of black and white photographs too if you prefer. The photograph/s can be from any time – old and new are welcome. You’ll find a post on how to create better black and white photographs here.

Share your photo on Instagram using #bwphotoproject (PODcast is here). You can also share your posts and photos in the B&W Photography Project Facebook Group.

The Black and White Photography Project runs every Sunday. The Linky is live from that day through to Saturday. If you include a link back to PODcast or the blog badge I’ll happily share your post for you.

    It looks like Monet’s waterlilies pond, love the weeping willow trailing its fingers in the still water.

    Thanks for hosting.

    Stunning photo – love those reflections. Love how black and white changes the mood of a photo – it does look slightly eerie but still very beautiful

    I love switching colour photos to black and white and seeing how they change – often the focus is completely shifted. Great shot.
