It is well established that my favorite theme for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE is BLACK & WHITE. Therefore I took several BLACK & WHITE pictures in the last week and not just the picture of Taylan that I used as my submission for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE.
Here are a few more of those BLACK & WHITE pictures:
…the strength of street knowledge.
I don’t usually take a bunch of extra pictures for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE any longer, but with a theme like STREET PHOTOGRAPHY, it really screamed to take a ton of images. So that is what I did.
On Saturday morning I went down to the Des Moines Farmer’s Market with my Mom. STREET PHOTOGRAPHY is supposed to be kind of activity where you just take pictures quickly. I set my camera on High Contrast Monochrome and just snapped when I saw something I liked. Kind of a second homage to “The Americans”, like the one I did for THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT.
Here are some of my favorites from Saturday:
I do love STREET PHOTOGRAPHY. It is one of my favorite themes every year.
I took a few alternate TRANSPORTATION pictures for last week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE.
All of these were taken with the new drone. There will be a more comprehensive blog on the drone if it ever warms up and I get to actually make some videos and what-not.
I don’t know when that will be. Looking at the current 2 week forecast, there isn’t a single day with a temperature above freezing for a fortnight. A FORTNIGHT people!
I like winter as much as the next guy, but from the moment the drone showed up in my hands, I’ve been ready for spring. Spring, which is still about 3 weeks away. Although just because spring is here, doesn’t mean that we will finally get some warm weather.
My TRANSPORTATION alternates:
I might have to find a big indoors venue to do a little flying at this rate.
I haven’t published alternates for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE for quite sometime because I haven’t taken excessive WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE images like I had been.
However, last week I did take a few more ART pictures, so I thought I would share them:
All of these pictures were taken on a quick stroll through downtown Ames on Sunday.
