K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Number Two

‘Down to the Sea’ minus the original colors!

Week two of the ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge kicks off with something a little more simply in execution than last week’s challenge.

You can take a look at Dale’s offering right here

For my take, I decided to go with a basic color photo (the original shot) converted to black and white. The photo was taken at one of San Francisco’s most amazing ‘ruins’, The Sutro Baths at Ocean Beach.

All right, I know what you’re saying: ‘Where’s the original color shot?’ How about this- the color shot gets bought into the light NEXT Monday. That gives an entire week to look at and consider what the original ‘should look like’.

The color of water? The color of sand? The color of cloudy blue sky? Or… could that be fog covered sky? The colors of a seagull… including its feet? What other colors should or could be present to make an ocean scene feel legit?

It’s all about imagination, something we all have and hopefully use on a daily basis!

Feeling the challenge? If you are, you can create a new masterpiece (showing us the black and white version for this week on my site…), or use something you’ve already created previously, add a link to it in your comment or either my or Dale’s blog and there you go!

But even if you’re not up to the challenge, consider how many times you’ve used your imagination to ‘fill in the blanks’ to an incomplete image you’ve seen.

Here’s hoping you all have a great Monday and find a great way to use your imagination to ‘fill in the colors’ to any and all ‘colorless’ situations you might find… ?
