A friend challenged me on Facebook to take a black and white picture of my day for 7 days. It was interesting and a bit of a challenge as I soon realized not every picture I took translated well to black and white. That challenge lead me to this post. So I decided to take a black and white picture every day for a week and capture my week via this pictures. Right off I am going to say some of these pictures didn’t translate great into black and white, but I wanted to include them as they were so different (for me). Here goes my week.
I started on a Friday and stopped into a coffee shop I had never been in. I had time to kill on my way to meeting friends. The above picture is the coffee bar. I thought the old dresser and silver trays were neat.
Saturday shopping with a friend. We get together 4-5 times a year for the day. We make our lists and of course stop for lunch. Not a great shot but was a fun day. Did get boots for my fall explorations!
Was thinking of what I could take pictures of for the week and thought “Sunday Blog Share” of course. This is where I spend part of my Sunday morning with my peeps (you know who are you!!) My desk is the linoleum chrome kitchen table I grew up with. This is a corner of my bedroom.
Weather wise we have been having unseasonably warm weather. I saw these bikes and had to take a picture. Not something I have seen before where I live. I don’t consider my city bicycle friendly. We are working on it and have some bike lanes but some end abruptly. So saw this and was like @&#*(. I’m thinking maybe a tour group as lots of cruise ships in and maybe neat way to see the city. Just a guess.
Of course I had to include a picture of my favoriate building – our downtown library. It is about a 15 minute walk from work and I am there at least once a week. Either dropping something off or picking something up. Plus they have a really nice coffee shop there.
This mural is part of a rejuvenation of a neighbourhood. There have been other murals painted by various individuals some accepted and other not so much.
I am lucky enough to have green spaces within walking distance of work. This small park is one.
This project was interesting as there are days I don’t take my phone with me. Yes, you read that right. Knowing I wanted to capture a picture of part of my day had me slowing down and looking around for material. Would this work? Maybe not but it is interesting. Have to get the library. Hmm…the days are getting shorter. Well, that last one was a major part of my week.
I would recommend this project either in black and white or color. See what you capture when you stop and look around.
You can always start now!
