Onwards and Upwards

"The present is the ever moving shadow that divides yesterday from tomorrow. In that lies hope."
(Frank Lloyd Wright, American architect)

So here it is, the final photo for the month of Flash of Red monochrome. Colour returns with the morning…….but it has been a blast. I have really enjoyed mono. Will be doing some more soon.

This is my staircase in my hallway with the light shining through the bannisters.

A whole month collage on my Extras just for fun.
I've loved your mono series, but looking forward to seeing some colour from you tomorrow. Lovely, lovely capture.

Got through it:). I’m going to carry on shooting in camera raw Black & White so that I always have a colour image in the bank if I want it.

I like b&w having started using it in one of these challenges a few years ago

Well done you have come up with so many interesting photos for this theme, although I am still in therapy after seeing the scarecrow photos.

I love the contrast and the abstract look of this.
February 28th, 2019  
Nice light and shade, well done for finishing, I think I would have struggled!
February 28th, 2019  
Fab contrast, well done to finish the month. How's your husband motoring now?

@golftragic Thanks, he is still not weight bearing, so hopping nicely on those crutches! We see the consultant on 13th March, so more x-rays and hopefully he will have mended a lot more by then. In the meantime, I have just started antibiotics for a probably tooth infection, possibly from a cracked root beneath a crown I only had put in last year. Deep joy! But it's not too painful if I keep off the tooth, so hopefully the meds will settle it down very fast. Hoping it isn't cracked as I don't want to have to lose it! Rollercoaster Year continues LOL! Hope you two are doing well now? You sound busy! xxxx

Cool shot!

Great lighting!

Good news about your husband Casa, but bad news about your dental problems. That sounds absolutely awful, I'll keep all digits crossed that it's not cracked. Fixing that under a crown would not be fun, and very expensive. We're doing pretty well now thanks, all things considered. Currently having a very hot spell, 38 degrees today (c100F) and we were silly enough to play golf. Took lots of cold fluids, towels etc, etc, but Les started feeling sick after about 11 holes so we bailed out and came home. Both of us used to be OK in hot weather but I guess OA has caught up with us in that department. Damn.

@golftragic Ouchies, that sounds a tad hot to be out playing golf! But you're doing better than me........more than 24 and I have wilted in a heap! Thanks, plodding on with the metronidazole, one of the few antibiotics I am not allergic to, and awaiting how it is in a week. Love to you and Les xx

@casablanca If the weather is hot, and stays hot you do get used to it to some extent. Must take great care with fluids, hats, shade etc, etc. After all, people have to work in these temps, we chose to play. (There are now quite strict heat policies in most work-places, and even at the golf club. Yesterday, all play after 8.44am was cancelled, ie half the day's players in the 'afternoon' field. No carts allowed on the course once it's over about 35 degrees - fire danger - and anyone who chooses to play on foot is clearly informed that doing so is entirely their own responsibility.) Not like the poor devils I saw labouring on building sites in Dubai in mid-40s or worse.

@casablanca Whoops. Thanks for the kind wishes and love to you and yours too. xx (Can't remember your husband's name.)
March 2nd, 2019  
@golftragic Wow, how interesting. I guess that is the difference between western health and safety and the rest of the world.

@casablanca Absolutely right. The labourers were, of course, all immigrants from the sub-continent, thus (a) desperate for money; and (b) easily replaced. Democracy may be flawed, but it's a heck of a lot better than the alternatives.
