Blogging 'Round the Globe: Monochrome Week End


Below is my very modest contribution to this photo theme. This is a challenging photo game brought to you from Scotland  (I think!. My apologies to Aileni. I tried to refresh my memory but the site has undergone  revisions and I couldn't confirm the host's home nation. Please correct me if I am wrong! )

Do check out the photos of the other contributors. There are some exceptional black and white photographs exhibited there!

  1. That's a fascinating shape. It looks very good in B&W.

    By the way, Aileni is a Welshman living in Ireland since 1990 ;)

  2. You have made some revisions of your own.
    The rocket looks like weird design from WWII when they invented all manner of strange things... that rarely worked.

  3. A very well captured Rocket, being framed and photographed perfect.

  4. this is a great shot
    and I love the people entering, that bit of a sense of motion makes the object stand out even more

  5. Excellent B&W. Ironic that the rocket is so still in a dynamic scene.

    Thank you all for coming by.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
