At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. ~Albert Schweitzer
One more try with monochrome images. This image was taken around midday.

I love black and white photography and love to watch work of others but for me it’s a very difficult task. I try to avoid. I tried to work on it in my earlier days and even particiapted in Leanne’s Monochrome theme but then I was not satisfied with my own work. In a way I gave up on that.
In the 10th lesson of learn photography series, Raj has discussed various issues related to black and white photography. I decided to give it a try.
I like to take pictures while travelling even though the conditions are not often supportive but then it is easy to get a black and white or at least a monochrome photo during winter. HEre is my first photo taken on Monday while travelling. The blur tree is the proof.
I tried to work on flowers but could make it with only one rose. When the colour of petals and stamen are similar it is difficult to get a perfect balance of grey.
The second is the statue of mother with her dead son by Käthe Kollwitz taken in Berlin. Tourist are not allowed to enter the room and respect it. I kept the space around the statue just to show the size of the room.
Next is a bright colour perfectly locked bicycle.
The top and the roof.
I took this picture for the bright colours and I don’t want to miss the fun by converting it to black and white. Would you like to turn it to black and white???
Now it’s time to listen to Raj.

These pictures were taken while travelling through one of the beautiful roads in Norway. The storm, strong winds, curvy roads and lack of sufficient light made it very difficult to get a proper photograph. Anyways I got into adventure and now we see the results.
I have not been part of black and white photo challenge but here are my entries. Instead of black and white they are more like monochrome. The images have blue tint rather than pure white due to snow I guess.
I would love to here your comemnts on these images. Are they really abstract or they reveal all details. Do share your ideas.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts.
