For the last day of the black and white challenge we’re visiting the Stupa and reclining Buddha at Luang Namtha, in Laos.
It’s easy to miss this Buddha because it’s hidden behind the large and particularly stunning stupa, That Luang Namtha. The Stupa itself responds well to the black and white treatment.
I actually prefer it in colour, especially juxtaposed against the brilliant blue of the sky.
So this is it. I’ve completed the five day black and white photography challenge. I’ve learned several things. The first is that I can actually post every day. It’s a matter of being organised and planning ahead, especially when it comes to fitting it all in around my paid work. It’s crazy in that part of my life this week. And, although I can manage the daily posts, I’m returning to two a week – it’s a routine that suits me just fine.
More significantly, I’ve got some new photography goals. Looking back through my archives I’ve realised how much my photography has changed since I started taking snaps with my iPhone a few years ago. I’m going to take Sue’s advice from WordsVisual and experiment with raw images. That’ll lead to more sophisticated editing. I’ve been using iPhoto. It’s time to move on. If you’re a photographer, which editing programme do you use?
Thank-you to pommepal, over at gypsy life: Taking time to see the details, for inviting me to join the Black and White 5 day challenge. Check out pommepal’s photos from day five. For her it’s mostly about old car wrecks.
My fifth and final nominee for this challenge is Perelincolors. Their blog bursts with colour and travel advice. And, they have a monthly feature Tech of the Month which is full of handy tips and suggestions for photographers. You might see me there.
Remember, there are only two rules for this challenge
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun
