A way around the dull colors is to convert to black & white.

Cloudy Day in the USA

Today is the election day. May the sane one win.

My favorite article about the election from The Guardian
Forget fear and loathing. The US election inspires projectile vomiting
Here’s an excerpt
Back when America was “great” – say, in the 1970s – the most unpleasant emotions a presidential race might inspire were “fear and loathing”. We expected our political process to provoke antagonism and ennui. We did not expect it to trigger projectile vomiting.

But this year is different, with psychotherapists reporting widespread depression, insomnia and digestive problems among the electorate. Record numbers are voting early, by mail, as if to purge themselves of all connection to the proceedings.

Add in the realization that the whole world is watching this spectacle and the sensitive American is likely to feel something akin to physical shame – as if someone had walked in and found them deflowering a close relative or a pet.

This one looks downright spooky compared to yesterday’s weeping willow.

It’s snowing. Again. Ten weekends in a row. It shouldn’t stick or stay for too long this time around.

This is the last day of my first and last challenge. It has distracted me from the snow and bitter cold. Maybe my world will soon change from black and white to color.

There are only two rules for this challenge:
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

For my last day, I would like to invite Ben Rowe, at Aperture64. He is a Polish photographer who has done this challenge before and he did a great job. He said he would do it again. Go check out his work.

For those I have not invited, it has been for one simply selfish reason. I have been enjoying your images of early spring and/or late summer in full beautiful color.

Another reason why I’m doing this challenge is because I do not have any photos of other crafts to show this Friday.

There are only two rules for this challenge:
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

I would like to extend this invitation to Truels, at Truels’ Blog . He lives in in Denmark and documents the seasons and lately has been doing some very nice monochrome images.

A third reason I decided to participate in this challenge is to finally tryout the Nik Silver Efex software I have had for over a year.

There are only two rules for this challenge:
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

I would like to extend this invitation to Tobias, at Empire of Lights. He is an abstract photographer from Germany who posts intriguing images in color and in black & white.

Where Am I?
