Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White Picket fence


First I have to say that I prefer these photos at full size but it seemed overwhelming since I wanted to share the different versions of the photo.

I really like any black and white for this photo. Mostly because it suits the location. Having said that I need to share a little something about where this photo was taken.

It’s taken in the ‘Old Town’ of a little town called Niagara-on-the-Lake. In Ontario Canada. It’s a town rich in Canadian history. In 1792 our first provincial parliament was convened there. (Then called Newark.) Later it was occupied by American forces and then regained by British Loyalists. In the 1880’s it was renamed Niagara on the Lake. Many of the homes and buildings in the central area where this photo was taken, are the originals from the rebuilding after the town was burnt by the retreating Americans. Other’s are kept in similar style to the period.

This next photo isn’t black and white but has the black and white more dominant than the original.

  1. The first B & W seems to allow the light on the front of the house to emphasize its features more. Your composition carries the viewer along follow the fence line to the house, which can mimic someone’s experience. Happy Photo Challenge.


Kindly share your ponderings!
