7×2 = 14. Black & White photo double challenge Day 6

My delightful friends Dominique and DeeDee have both nominated me for this challenge. Me being an all-or-nothing kind of guy decided I would do 14 days straight. This has the added advantage of meaning I don’t have to think up anything new to post for a couple of weeks…..

Some of my pics are new, some are old, some have appeared on Instagram already (in colour). Some of the subjects have special significance for me, some have special significance for friends, some are just pretty pictures.


With regards choosing nominees. I really don’t enjoy doing that. So I am going to use this opportunity to nominate new bloggers and new followers to help them enter the fold of this lovely community. There is no obligation, and anyone else who wants to take part is very welcome to do so!

The rules are: Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day.

Today’s nominee is: Danielle Marie





  1. I love this photo and not just because it has a cat in it. The stark contrast in lighting is wonderful. Now I’m waiting to hear what Mel has to say about this one! Haha! There must be something sinister about it!

    1. Cats are always a bit sinister😉.

      In 2010 I spent a couple of weeks alone in a cottage on Crete. Breakfast time each morning this little character would peer through the window before coming in to visit through the open door. On this particular day I had the camera on the table when it appeared. I was so lucky to get this shot. I am glad you like it Linda.😊❤️

  2. A- loved this simple and elegant photo!! It lends itself to a lucid dream where owner and kitten speak to one another without a word… without a purr… but with the kindred spirit of a deep friendship.

    The contrast! Light! Dreamy! 😍

  3. Hi Darren,
    I need your help to solve a mystery, I’m sure that you’re the right peron for this:
    I was walking in a small countryside road , fields here and there but mostly woods and bushes. There was a soft breeze. As i walked, i was hearing a strange, weird noise!!
    You know the sound of a highway but even weirder, perhaps like lots and lots of motor bikes passing one after another or like billion of bees around a hive.
    I started looking for the source of it. But there was nothing. Not even a car !
    So i thought perhaps that’s the wind going through the woods but i walked in lots of woods in my life, but never heard that.
    So what is it ?

    1. Could it have actually been bees? We have a nest of tiny bumblebees behind our shed that sound like this. Also a distant mistle thrush perhaps
      ? They sound like a rattle.


      1. No 😞
        It wasn’t bees or animals.
        It sounded more like motorbikes accelerating. Of course it wasn’t. Or perhaps the sound of wind coming from underneath the door, you know….
