Black and white is powerful… and not just in the form of black words on white paper.
Day 17 (as you see I’m permanently a day behind!) is on the theme of glass… as in, say, the view through a window.
I didn’t even consider bothering taking a picture specifically for this assignment, partly because I was too busy blogging about The Burning Mountain of Huexotzinco… but chiefly because I’ve got half a dozen – at least – set of photos from the last half year alone with views through windows. The difficulty was to decide which one to go for.
Another attempt at playing with scale – how by putting something in the foreground, things in the distance become insignificant.
The lamp is a clear winner. 🙂
Day 14’s assignment was all about scale. Ideally I’d have photographed the same object I suppose by putting things next to it to make it a different scale… but that requires creativity of which I’ve got short supply. Besides, the weather was too good to stay indoors!
Attempt no. 1: Looking up at the London Eye.
The day 11 assignment called for colour… since I’m not fond of yellow, I bypassed the daffodils… which left me with this:
Day 6 Assignment: Connection.

Photo 101 Day 2 Assignment: View of a street
