A week in B&W

I've been doing the facebook challenge of a week in B&W - a bit of fun where you post a  B&W photo a day with no words and no people in it.

These are what I took, including some from the Salon de Refuses.

As you can see, I've had a pretty mundane week, but in B&W and close up, it's sort of more interesting.

Maybe that's the lesson of living in the moment? Focus on what is around you, enjoy the detail.

Did you take part in the B&W challenge? Consider yourself tagged!

  1. I love that shot of the paper lanterns!

    Yes, I've seen it on FB. I love B/W... everything is stripped down to its barest.

  2. What a lovely collection of photos! I particularly like the sparkling lights in the jar.

    Yes, I've been tagged in the Facebook challenge - twice!

  3. A great collection. I like the lamps.

    Visiting from BLACK AND WHITE WEEKEND.


  4. Great shots!
    Thanks for sharing at

  5. I always enjoy black and white photos! Thanks for linking up at

  6. I need to do more B&W photography. Devoid of colour Tthe images actually make you look closer. Have a great week. I am joining you at Imagine-in-ing

  7. I love the collection, black and white photography gives it a total different dimension X #pointshoot

  8. I also really appreciate the details that a black and white filter enables us to see. I’ve taken part too. I don’t usually like challenges on FB but I love this one. Some great shots, I especially like the lights and paper lanterns. Thank you for linking up to #PointShoot 📸

    1. Even shopping at IKEA looks a bit more interesting in B&W....but it's not. Still a joy vacuum....

  9. I love black and white photos, your right you take more of the detail in when it is black and white

  10. You're so right that even the less interesting things in life can be so much more interesting and atmospheric in black and white! I love the ones of the bricks! thanks for sharing with #HighlightsofHappy

  11. What a fun challenge, and very well done! I might have to play too! xoxo #pointshoot xoxo

  12. My husband takes mostly black and white photographs, he likes to take them on an old film camera and develop them, they really do offer a whole different perspective and such intimate detail. #HighlightsofHappy

  13. What an interesting lot of photos, Lydia. I must admit that I often ransack through my "Salon des Refusés" and repurpose them with suitably wild editing. Some turn out "Bien Acceptés"!
    Thanks for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.

  14. You have some lovely photos here. Yes, I agree, it's important to focus on the details - the big picture is often beyond our reach.
