It is amazing how quickly time goes, three years has passed. Now the Forth year  will begin. I will try to learn more ways to express myself in my monochrome pictures.  Here is my entry Alone – my entry to Monochrome Madness 4-1Alone - Ritva Sillanmäki (2 of 2)

MM-3-49 – Hydrangea

My entry to  for this weeks Monochrome Madness is a photo from my back-yard .This wiltered flower of hydrangea was my pick for this week as I tooks photos for an other challange. It turned out so nicely into a black and white photograph.  #monochromemadness #Leannecole

I have been very, very lazy in participating  in Monochrome Madness and as the photos there are always so gorgeous, I am also very disappointed of my laziness. This week , well, here is my post for the challenge. I visited French Riviera early October and this is taken at there. This Original version can be found in color in by previous post Villefranche sur mer -rue Obscureritva-sillanmaki-rue-obscure

Woman

I love taking photos of people. I try to capture a moment in the photo, A true feeling, not a plastic smile. I say this woman sitting and taking in the life around her – and took the shot. Black and white portraits are something I really enjoy. I have here the original photo in color and this final version. Do you agree with me that the BW has more magic in it?Maposa , Goa (91)-4

I have  here also the original photo, color crop, and first version in BW…what speaks to you the most, please let me know.

Monochrome Madness 35 – Lively street view

Ritva's Art - Monochrome Photography

This city shot from Vancouver is so suitable for a monochrome treatment due to the old-time feel of street. I did two variations of it to see which one suited better, the one I chose is my entry  to  the  Monochrome Madness Challenge (MM35) . Which one would you have chosen?

Please visit the MM link,  you will inspired I always am.
