Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Fences

Fence and Bamboo Tubes

Fence and Bamboo Tubes

The above photo was taken at Jingtong Old Street (Taiwan). Tourists write their wishes and blessings on bamboo tubes and hang them everywhere … in this case, over a concrete fence. Some of those writings are in English 🙂

The second photo was taken in my backyard. For the sake of having a “point of interest”, I chose to focus on a spot where the color-coating has peeled off. I also felt that the mesh may look dull in B&W, therefore I sprinkled some water on the fence to give it a shiny, reflective look.

These are my entries for Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Fences. Which do you prefer?

      Thank you. btw, I notice a couple of bloggers mentioning about being confused about this week’s theme. Because on your blog page, the title is correct, but the subtitle still says “This week’s topic is Open Topic”, which was previous theme. So you may want to edit it to avoid confusion. I know it is because of copy/paste 😛

    I love what you did with the second photo. It looks far from dull, the water certainly adds an extra layer to the image, a very subtle but noticeable layer – you even made the fence glint 🙂 Setting up shots is always fun. There’s so many ways to create the story but the challenging part is to make it all natural ^^’

      Honestly, I didn’t expect anyone to have even the slightest interest about how I set up the shots. So, I’m pleasantly surprised by your attention and comment. Thanks, Mabel.

        I used to set up shots for my blog too. I found it challenging to make it all natural and creative. We have control over how we want to make the photo turn out…but sometimes it’s harder than we think. It’s fun, yes, but it’s time consuming too sometimes 🙂
