A couple of days ago, a few friends tagged me on Facebook to do the Five-Day Black and White Photo Challenge, wherein you post one black and white photo each day for five days. I must say, this is one challenge I’ve really enjoyed doing, partly because I really treated it as such–a challenge.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram or are a friend on Facebook, you would know that I spent two weeks in Japan. It’s been one of my favorite trips to date. Japan is a really amazing country and I’ll be writing more about that in the succeeding posts.
Back to the challenge though, I’ve decided I would only pick photos from my most recent trip, and I would only pick images that I really thought would stand out in black and white. It was a lot harder than I thought. Not all images translated well in black and white. Plus Japan is such a “colorful” experience. I say that in the literal and figurative sense. It can be an assault to your senses at times. Color would be the easier way to go.
I did manage to select the five photos for the challenge though, and I think my attempt was not too shabby. Here’s Japan, as I saw it, in black and white.
