Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #70: Monochrome

Another week of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, this time organized by Patti. The theme this week is monochrome. You know, I do a lot of monochrome images. But, not only black and white or greyscale is monochrome. It’s also when only one color is dominating the image.

To distinguish this image from my usual monochrome images, I picked this one from my archive. It’s taken a few years ago on Corfu. When using the tag “corfu” you can find many more impressions from that wonderful greek island.

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 3-20

610_8949-t_wThis is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers.

This week, we have a theme again. It’s “road”.

Several kinds of road came up to my mind, when I read the theme. Several kinds of road images, too. But, here we are in a monochrome challenge. I don’t want to simply have an image converted to bw. I want an image, that ‘works’ in monochrome.

This image is taken in the old fortress of Corfu Town last year. Last week my travel series on Corfu ended. In case, you missed it, have a look. It’s a very nice greek island.

Corfu – a review

610_8114-e2_wκαλή μέρα, χαιρετισμός – hello!

For this final post on the greek island Corfu, I picked my top images as an appetizer for your own trip to this beautiful island.

You can go by car and take a ferry from the greek mainland or come by plane. There is an international airport on Corfu, only a few kilometers away from Corfu Town.

At least from Germany, there are no scheduled flights, but carter flights for vacationers. But, I was able to get seats without booking a package holiday. Instead, I booked flight, hotel and rental car separately and everything was fine.

Now, you can enjoy the slideshow at the end of this post as a summary. For those of you, having missed the previous posts, you can find them easily by using the category ‘corfu‘. Each post focuses on one location or aspect of the island and has a gallery of some images at the end.

Next week, I’m starting with another location.

Stay tuned!

Corfu cats

610_7722-sc_wOn Corfu we saw many, many cats. Most of them quite shy, others trusting and curious. But, all of them very skinny. You can see easily, they have to work hard to make a living. Surprisingly, I didn’t see or hear any dog.

Not all of the images in the gallery below are mine. Half of them are taken by my company. He is also here at WordPress.

While I was driving our rental car, he was able to take some photos while we were on the road. So, he got the images where the cats are examining the waste bins.

Look in the lower right corner to see, which images he gave me. 🙂 To see some more images from Corfu, you could switch to his blog, too.

Take care!

Corfu plant collection

 

610_7907-s_wToday, I don’t want to write much. Instead, I want to let the plants speak for themselves.

Corfu is very green. The hills are mostly covered over by forests. In my past posts I already showed you some images taken at our hikes through forests. Many different plants are blooming, even outside the gardens and the parks, at the street sides and beside the paths.

Unfortunately, I’m unable to name them. So, enjoy the slideshow below.

Take care!
