Cee BW Challenge: Re-Purposed Wheels

Road Tyre Bull Art by rubys polaroid

Today’s monochrome photo challenge theme by Cee is on WHEELS, well i indeed got a shot of wheels but not in your conventional way.
The art work in the shot depicting a Bull is made up of used Tyres and sits on the Tyre rim, so technically is a picture of wheels (Tyres and Rim) 🙂 .
I took this shot last year at the GTB Fashion Weekend Event, outside the main hall was an outdoor sales area/food court and beautiful art works like these where placed all around.

Morning peeps 🙂 , How was the weekend? I had a blast with a good friend of mine celebrating a milestone year *Extra-wide Grin* . 
On Friday we got the WordPress Challenge of an image that speaks to you of blissful mornings. Browsing my files i saw this and thought a Monochrome conversion would be great.
What do you think? Can you feel the warm rays coming through, if yes then this shot was a success 😀 .

WPC: In The Details

Hi everyone, how was your week? mine was ok,  not the best  but it will get better. So our challenge this week is to look closer at our environment. Discover something, macro or  not that people might  never see.
I admit to passing this Admiralty Toll-Plaza everyday and not giving it a second thought  but one day it was bright and hot, with my cam in hand i saw a play of shadows. I just couldn’t resist and my featured shot today is proof that even the mundane on certain days shine beautifully.
