September Monochromes

I decided on the name before I realised that I have one that was actually taken in October, but since I am unable to come up with a new creative sounding name, it remains as September Monochromes.

I want to start off with a Sepia image, it’s not necessarily a great image, but I liked the elements; seashore, people – young and not-so-young, and a fishing rod.

The next is the first of the Black and White images, it is one that I recently entered into a DP Review challenge called Clouds, I was experimenting with a borrowed Canon 80-200mm lens and most of the images came out very low contrast, so like the Sepia one above, most of the rest I’ve rendered in monochrome.  This one came out much better than expected, I had to give it a title for the challenge, so that’s how the title came to be.

Along the seashore, you are sure to find a coconut washed ashore by the waves, this one was partway up a concrete sloped walkway on the seawall, maybe washed there but probably kicked there by some youngster.

The final image is the one taken in October, after our Robbery ordeal and we daringly went right back to the Kingston Promenade, I like the clouds in the sky and thought that the lighthouse silhouetted against it would look nice  🙂

They were doing some renovation work to the lighthouse, so you might notice the scaffolding on the sides of it there.

The Deck – Week 38

This week was busy, I got more photographs than usual 🙂  I have quite a number that I would love to use as the photo for The 2010 Deck this week, but I have to choose one, so after some thought I chose one that I am unlikely to replicate anytime soon, it is a wide-angle shot from a low perspective:

This is the “Lamp Room” at the top of the Lighthouse in Kingston, Georgetown, Guyana.  It was taken from the stairwell at the level with the floor.
