Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: A new photo


For black and white images I like to use bold but simple patterns. Some repetition is good. I look for something that can fill the frame without being too busy.

Katie the dog and I took a walk around the yard yesterday looking for something that might fit. Something natural, with pretty shapes. Something interesting.

In a flower bed I found nasturtiums pushing their way through the fence. I’ve always loved their flat leaves, the veining pattern, the rounded shapes.

Hmmmm…repeating patterns.

So this time leaves take precedence over blossoms. They’ve waited a long time for the attention, but yesterday they were the focus of my new photo.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. I like that very much, Dawn. I love leaves of all kinds. But I’ve never really looked at nasturtium leaves. Beautiful.

  2. I love the contrast of the fine veins in the leaves. In black and white, they remind me of Daddy Long-legs spiders.

  3. These turned out so well! Funny how the detail comes through when the color is removed.


  4. They did turn out real well. Great photo. 😀


  5. Very cool. Love that the monochrome brings out the patterns that I would otherwise overlook for the brilliant greens and yellows.
