The Weekend in Black and White


This morning I went to my optician for an eye test. I'm glad to say that my eyes are fine and I don't need to go back for another two years.
While I was waiting I couldn't resist getting my camera out!




You'll find many more black and white photos through the Home Page.

Come and look - or better still, join us!

These are fun shots. Glad your eyes are fine. I envy you. Mine aren't terrible but I need a script change every year. Now that I'm wearing tri-focals (even though you can't really tell) it feels like another sign of aging.

Marie said...

A lot to choose between ;-)

These are great Dragonstar. I can't help getting the feeling that I'm being watched...even though they are just inanimate objects

REJEN said...

Very nice and fun pictures...;-D

James said...

Great idea and execution! The glasses are a perfect subject for a black and white photo.

It's an honor to have my photo chosen. Thank you!

Woody said...

LOTS of symmetry :-)

Lucky you! I need reading glasses and they are a pain with photography.

Fantastic formalised pattern and tone! Almost like an optical illusion! (I know! Bad pun!)

Karen said...

What a fun photo! I am due for a trip to the optometrist, last time I went, I came out with three new pair of glasses! I figure, if I have to wear glasses, I want some variety!

Original idea and subject for a black and white!

:)

Fine shots, I particularly like the second image as the mirror adds a new dimension to it!

LauraX said...

what a fun subject for black and white!

aileni said...

What a spectacle... I might even say spectacular!

Sorry.

Both great shots. If I had to choose, I like the perspective of the second one.

Peter said...

very striking photograph

Johnny Nutcase said...

that second one is perfect in monochrome!

Glad your eyes is fine. One need good eyes when photografing. Fun photos and very good in b&w

NatureFootstep said...

lol, I would never have thought about that. I think the first shot is the best one.

Serendipity said...

Interesting shots, I really like the portrait composition

Genie said...

It’s always nice to get a good report on our eyes....without them we would have a bit of trouble taking pictures. You were so clever to pull out your camera to capture the moment. So many frames for so many eyes.

Gunsside said...

The first one is really great , creative shots.
Have a nice week :))

Congrats for your fine eyes. I can't read without my eye glasses.

I love the second shot so much!

Tash said...

Here's to looking at you, kid.
In the 1st shot, the glasses seem to have little dot eyes behind them. Glad your vision is just fine. Your photo-eye is super too.

James Higham said...

I don't think I've ever seen photos such as that, except in an optician's window, of course.

Cildemer said...

He he he! Great and funny shots!
Had to look twice;o)

Have a beautiful Sunday****

Snow Leopard said...

Nice one.
Good thing I still have perfect vision and see this place only in photos :P

magiceye said...

classic compositions!

Serline said...

Indeed, the "eyes" have it! What a "visionary line-up" ;-P

Lena said...

I love the second photo. The glasses form lovely patterns :)

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

nice shots - maybe I'll buy glasses in Dublin? - I will be there for the weekend, and I'm looking forward to that a lot
