I though I might try writing a bit more information on my travels after the glossy photos 🙂 This may become a regular thing or not, depending on what time I have.
This day was spent in a long 8 hours drive from Warialda near the Qld. border down The Fossickers Way through Barraba and Manilla to Gunnedah. At Manilla I took the shortcut across by Lake Keepit saving more than 50km than if I’d stayed on the main roads. On the Oxley Highway through Gunnedah heading west until a little roadhouse junction called Mullaley where I turned off and took a road I’d never been on before down through Tambar Springs and Coolar called the Black Stump Way.
Very little traffic and I just cruised along stopping to take photos when I could see a pulling over spot in enough time to actually stop! That’s the one thing I’m still not good at – seeing far enough ahead to stop where I want to take the photos. Some old almost none existent towns along the way, reminders of a slower pace and the smaller communities that thrived.
This is a movement shot I wanted to try in B&W I’m not sure that it works particularly well and would like any comments about it. This is my fourth post in a B&W Challenge to post 1 B&W image a day for 5 consecutive days and also ask another person to participate each day. Those joining us so far are Robyn, because she asked me to join in, Meg, Stan and Dan. Click on their names to see what they have been posting.
Today I am asking John of Meticulousmick if he would like join in the fun.
This is NOT a ‘have to’ and you can choose not to play along if you’d rather not or do it later if it doesn’t fit your current schedule.. it’s completely up to you 😀
If you choose to play along – you post a B&W photo for five consecutive days from when you start and each day nominate another photographer to enter the challenge.
