Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge


Sculptures, Statues & Carvings

This week Cee has asked to see sculptures, statues and carvings. I always find these things interesting to photograph so here are a few from my archives which I have converted to black and white for this challenge. In some of them I have used the coloured filter feature on my photo editing software and for one I used the sepia tone instead.

I spotted this old gargoyle statue on a wall when I was walking from Potts Point to Rushcutters Bay in Sydney. Here I have used the sepia tone feature.

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.

    • Most of them were taken on my previous camera, a Nikon L120 compact camera. The oldest one of the woodcarving was probably taken with the little Fujifilm camera I had before that. Currently I use a Pentax KR10 as I broke the Nikon. When I do this challenge I often make a copy of the picture I want to use and crop it before turning it black and white so it is different from the original.
