Thank you to Norma at Emovere and Virginie at Darwin on the Rocks for passing the Five Day Monochrome Photos Challenge on to me. Today I get to show you how indecisive I am by posting two pictures, because I could simply not decide between them. Both were taken in Newport, RI, at stately homes which at the turn of the 19th century belonged to the uber-rich and famous, but which are now tourist attractions for the unknown and ‘lower classes.’ Times they do change…
In choosing which photos to make over into monochrome, I tried to select those which either suggest a story or seem to capture a strong unique moment in time. In any event, I hope you enjoy them.
Today I am passing the challenge on to an incredibly gifted and creative artist of many talents, Heidi of Wild Call of the Soul. Her photography, especially, is at once incredibly strong and bold, yet intimately close and personal at the same time.
I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photos selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
