Caroline, wow....yes Frank and Craig annoyingly kept his 10 hidden away. He knows dammed well it warranted a 10, but had to be different.

Another great show tonight, with Caroline and Frankie so far ahead...they were almost out of sight. Of these two (for me) it was definitely Caroline's night.

I feel this week's dance-off will be from Sunetra, Jake & Mark.

To  clarify, it was the first heart attack I didn't know about...I did know about the fatal one.

After all this time, I've only just found out that our Geoff had in fact suffered a heart attack in 1995 and took three months off work to recuperate before he died after suffering a heart attack on a charity bike ride near Merthyr Tydfil in August 1996.

Morning, KEF……monochrome v colour?

I love the subtlety of tones that black and white images can have. In a world that often boasts about how many millions of colours a TV or monitor is able to produce … I love that in ‘Mono’ there is such a variety of what can be achieved in a photo. Black and White sounds so boring – but the fact is that there are so many shades in between… I love the challenge of bringing them all out in an image

Of course the black and white v colour debate is a very personal one. For every person who loves shooting mono there are many others who much prefer the vibrancy of colour photography.

Perhaps you may agree that by changing my earlier ‘snow scene’ shot into monochrome transformed it into ink- sketch type picture.

Loving those black n white pics David

 

Thank you kindly, both. I find it strange that after taking pictures in colour, I'm now tending to change them to b & w and making comparisons.

Speaking as someone who embraced colour photography since its inception, I find it interesting how certain photographs seem to assume appealing characteristics in b & w......perhaps it's a nostalgia thing.
