I have been challenged to take some black and white photographs. Never one to turn down a dare, unless it involves wing walking or baked beans, I thought it might be fun to give it a go. So I adjusted my faithful “point and shoot” to Monochrome Magic (or some such setting) and ventured forth into my multi-chrome world. It was then that I realised just how much colour dominates my life, it is the first thing I notice, what draws my eye and holds my attention. I had to stop thinking about hues and radiance and start thinking about contrast, light and shade, form. So I am going to make a week of it. No cerise or burnt orange, no baby pinks, violent violets or lemon yellows. Just black, white and all the grey stuff in between. Should be interesting; or incredibly boring.
