Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Houses

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge.

This week the topic is Houses: big, small, lighthouses, birdhouse, firehouse, toys etc.

These small slanted houses were for sale at a hardware store:

The next two were taken through the car window while driving. They are not great but I had to include them:

Pit Stop for Photo Op

We stopped near a bridge on our way home one day to see if we could find anything interesting.

I managed to capture a Kingfisher in a tree with Canadian Geese below and a cute Great Tit Bird.

Where Did It Go?

First, let me explain why this picture is so bad. My husband likes to do animation, so when we are out and about we will take pictures just to find a background or texture he might be able to use. We were on our way to his brother’s house and I just put my camera at the side window and started snapping away. Sometimes we get lucky.

When I took this one, I hadn’t even noticed the tiny building at all. It wasn’t until we got home and I dumped the card into the computer. That’s when I saw it.

I told him the next time we visit his brother we had to stop and get a good picture of it. I went back into the folder to try to gauge where exactly it was by looking at what I had snapped before and after this shot.

The next trip we slowed right down, sure we knew the location. Nothing. We could not find it. My lost opportunity. The lost building. I am not giving up yet. There will be more trips to his brother’s before the snow flies.
