Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

Posted on

This week’s photo challenge is twist. It can be a new ‘spin’ on an every day topic or event. I decided to stick with twist in the literal sense with a physical twist in structure. These photos are of a staircase that twists into a water foundation. I love how the black & white captures the twist.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

This week’s photo challenge focuses on lines and patterns. I love to photograph geometric shapes and patterns that we see everyday. Here are some random photographs I took of walkways, sidewalks, and paths we step across each day but may not notice the details. The simple lines create beauty.

One of my favorite photo ‘subjects’ is geometric and abstract designs. Black and white enhances bold shapes in photos. So I combined B&W and geometric designs around my city for this week’s photo challenge: geometry.




Weekly Photo Challenge: Simple

Posted on Updated on

This week’s photo challenge is simple. A winter blast hit the Pacific Northwest earlier this week. I live about forty minutes south of Seattle, so whenever snow is on the forecast that’s all they talk about. Here are some simple black and white photos with snow and ice. True the whole process of water into ice is complex, but I wanted to share.
