The topic for this week’s Black & White Photo Challenge from Cee is “Any Camera or Photographer


This first picture sums up perfection for me, especially when Mediterranean sunshine is added into the equation:

Happiness is  ….. a camera, a smiley coffee and a donut. (although my coffee was an espresso with no facial features whatsoever).

A photoshoot on a local beach is always fun too, even without the Mediterranean sunshine! :

I took this next picture on a photography course I did a few years back. Whilst I enjoyed learning about studio lighting, still life and portraiture, I came to the conclusion that all that faffing about with light-meters, flash-guns, lightboxes etc is not for me. I definitely prefer to be out in the open air.

To each his own.  I’ve always maintained that people enjoy doing what they’re good at: I wasn’t much good at studio photography.


I love old cameras. This isn’t mine though:

The happy photo made me smile! I also attended a workshop at a studio, but rather be outside taking photos. 🙂
