GREY

 

Well, over here in the UK we have had plenty of grey skies, but I can’t imagine we want to see any more of those for Carmi's current Challenge, which this week is GREY.

A grey sky, on the other hand makes for grey reflections in the Lake in our Park.

 

 

Shadows on our fence.   The wood has matured to a lovely silvery colour.

 

Grey rope on an old greyish table

 

And lastly, the mosaic patterns on a pedestrian square in Lisbon.   It is, of course, perfectly flat, but looking at that wavy pattern made me feel a bit sea-sick!

None of these photos has been taken in Black and White mode.   They are all truly GREY!

I love the grey in the lake (watch out, I might steal that idea!).

Black and White mode....Hmmmmmm!

Perhaps a grey butterfly?

Oh these are tremendous, and especially the last one as if almost waving to us, and it is a bit on the sea-sick feel if we linger too long! I just enjoy your reflecting/wandering water too, very nice.

Love the top one! amazing what water can create!

Phenomenal series! I love that the scenes themselves presented as grey. It's always that much more memorable when nature herself does the job of washing out the color.

I need some tea now: those wavy stones did me in :)

Excellent close-ups on the rope and the tiled plaza. And that water pic is beautiful. :)

Excellent series, Gilly - these are such clever captures. The rope is my pick - the Lisbon square makes me queasy, too!

You caught some excellent textures in your greys. Not always easy to do in monochrome.

I like your gray finds, Gilly. Of course like the U.K. weather, the pictures don't make things look real exciting.

BTW, we sampled a month of gray in London this spring.

That wavy concrete would have me tripping over my feet. I would have the sense I was falling.

Great shots all but the rope is my favorite.

Water and waves go together but the contrast between your first and last pictures couldn't be greater. The pattern in the last had we wondering 'how did they do that?'

hey Gilly that pedestrian square is a bit odd.....!

All great shots, but I love the woodgrain and shadows the best!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your picture of the silvery-gray wood was my favorite.
