Black & White Photography


Steps In The Yard


This week I’m keeping with the theme of photographs from the yard. I saw these as I was out back and I wondered how best could I photograph them. They were a lovely shade of brown, but I had in mind a B&W photo for these.

I kept the camera and myself low as I looked at these from different angles. I tried different photographic views but none of them felt right, until I came up with this angle and view.

I knew I had the photo that I wanted. It just flowed through the scene and looked to me as if these were steps one could take to another world. By now, you all should know that I have a very active imagination…

So, this is the finished image and I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I did in creating it…


  1. "Steps to another world . . ." I like the thought and the way you have seen the extraordinary in a very ordinary subject.

  2. Thanks Derek & Edd, having you two to leave a message on my site honors me. I enjoy photography and comments like these are a great encouragement. Thank you... :-)

  3. Very nice pic Glenn, composition and process are perfect !

    I need your help. I spend another survey but this time with another question.
    "Where do you prefer to shop? What is your favorite shopping center?"
