Phoneography Challenge~Black and White Christmas Angel


I don’t usually think Christmas in black and white, but this angel I recently spotted in a shop lends itself to another side of holiday color.

Today’s blog at Lens and Pens by Sally discusses the origins of Kodak moments, and also a photographer, Tina Modotti, who has a wonderful body of work that inspires me to further pursue this avenue in making photos.

Photo taken with a Samsung Galaxy.

    I agree with you, Angeline, and everyone else. She’s a beauty and B&W suits her very well. I wonder what her original use was and whether she was part of an orchestra. Wouldn’t that have been something to see?

    For B&W it;s a great choice.


  4. Oh you have a winged being too! Love the angle you took the angel. Really works πŸ™‚


  5. Beautiful, Angeline! B&W is a great choice here.

    The use of black & white in this photo creates a very serene look.

    Love the sparkle and shine Angeline!


  10. That looks so interesting in B&W, Angeline. I like the change in feel a lot.



  11. Yes, indeed, it works well in monochrome to observe the details of her face. She looks as though she were made in the Art Nouveau era of the early twentieth century. There is something real and unreal in the conversion, which I like. Happy Photo Challenge.

    You have captured a lot of movement around the central figure with the curved lines and arcs. Nicely done.


  13. You’re right about that, it’s not really a black and white holiday–as long as you’re in the spirit. Nice take on the dark side.
