Hey, I’m back. Finally, after three(!) months. What happened? I got a full-time job. Yay for me of course because now there’s more stability in my days and income. That’s very nice. But it’s also pretty shocking how few time there’s left to do whatever you want.
Enough about that, about these pictures… A few months back I shot a roll of Ilford HP 5 which is a black and white film. These were taken in our back yard to experiment with this film. I found that black and white is a bit trickier to use than colour. This is best shown with this first picture.Spot the flower in the middle. Kinda hard isn’t it. Not when you saw this in color. It’s a purple against green leaves so pretty easy to spot. In black and white however these purple and green colors are practically the same shade of grey. This makes Black and white a sweet tool to learn all about tones and contrast. Besides that it just is so beautiful when you see a great black and white photo. Now I’m gonna shut up and let you enjoy the rest of my pics.
I hope you enjoyed these 10 pics. If you did, please let me know in the comments. I now leave you in the hands of the wonderful Ellen at Potential Psychology. This is a circle remember. So if you click through each post you’ll eventually get round and end up here again. Have fun and sprinkle some kindness when you look at all the other pics!
See ya next month with another 10 on 10.

Glad you found time to photograph! I really love the texture in the first tile photo. It’s cool to get to play on film, must dig out my old film camera.
I love film Stephanie. You really should take out your old camera. Just for the fact that, when your negatives are printed, you can hold your photo’s and enjoy them.
Love love love. B&W makes everything look like art. (With some added photographer’s eye of course). I loved your photos and pictured you lingering around the backyard snapping this and that. Congrats on the job and I hope things settle so you can still find time to do the things you enjoy. Like more gorgeous photos. 🙂
Thanks Diana! I’ll do my best. It all starts with planning I guess 🙂
Great shots and wonderful to see you back in the circle. I can totally relate to struggling to find time. My blog has been the same since returning to work full time as an Art Teacher this year. I loved all the shots but the raindrops one was the standout. Great photos.
Thanks so much Michelle. So how do you find time to shoot?
What a great idea to photograph features of the yard Erik. I love the water drops falling from the gutter. Great to see you in the circle this month. I’m looking forward to November!
Thanks Ellen. It’s great to spend some time just photographing what’s around you. Makes one creative. I’ll see you in November!
Hey Erik, leuk om weer eens wat van je te zien. Gefeliciteerd met je baan! Werken kost inderdaad een hoop tijd. Ik zit nu een jaar zonder werk, en ik merk wel wat ik daar voor terug krijg, namelijk een hoop creativiteit. Ik weet nu wel dat als ik weer een baan krijg ik dat niet meer ten koste van mijn fotografie wil laten gaan.
Mooie foto’s, vooral die eerste dakpannen foto vind ik erg goed, spannende plaat.
Dank je Ronald! Mooi dat je meer van je creativiteit vindt. Een mooi voornemen ook om je fotografie niet ten koste te laten gaan van een baan.
Great pics – I think there’s something so edgy about shooting with film. It’s old school but it’s cool!
Thanks Sammie. I like old school! There’s something special about film that makes me wanna shoot it.
Congrats on the full time job Erik!! I love black and white photos. I went through a faze of buying that film only, years ago. It sure adds some edge and unexpected style. Love the family bikes pic best. Awesome photos as always x
Thanks so much Jo! It sure does give some nice results and I really like these pics. I’ve recently ‘discovered’ a downside to B&W though. I won’t be able to capture the beautiful fall colors we have at this time of year haha. Gotta use color film for that…
Great pictures! I’m a total fan of B&W photography!!! So dreamy and vintage! bravo! cathy
Gefeliciteerd met je baan!
