Once again, I pick up a photography assignment from Scott Thomas and this time its about Black and White photography.

The details about the assignment can be found @

The intense black and white photographs can be very catchy and deep, in contrast with the vibrant colors. Most of my pictures are converted to B & W. Well, below is my contribution:

The paddy fields. Coorg, Karnataka. In our Era.

Don't the fields remind of the olden times, in B & W ?

  1. Beautiful collection of photos, Sonali! Quite fascinating.

  2. Oh yes, I do love this black and white series, Sonali!

    Especially the traditional carvings at Mahabalipuram. Are the figures people or gods and goddesses? I couldn’t help noticing a few of them had no heads and I’m wondering if they were carved that way or if the heads fell off over the years.

    And the last picture, of your beloved beach in Goa, is my favorite. β™₯ Is that the moon in the sky, or the sun? Breathtaking, whichever one it is!

    • The figures represent scores of gods, goddesses, mythical figurines, also depicts some event of the ancient time. That’s the sunset in the last picture. I like the way you admire the beauty. Thank you very much, Barbara. I’m glad to have you here πŸ™‚

  3. These are all fascinating – they depict a world that’s so unlike my own. I find the carvings and the henna especially striking. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Sonali, what a great job! How fascinating to look at these. My favorites are the paddy field and the pic of you on the river. By the way, Barry and I are watching the movie Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Have you seen it? It’s based in India–a bunch of old(er) English people move there. So far we’re enjoying it. (And it’s not in black and white!)

  5. What a fabulous choice of pictures, sonali ! Each has its own beauty. I particularly enjoy the pictures of the hands (hennΓ© ?), the hills, a great contrast ! I also love the image of you and yours friends,rowing. The light and shadows look well in B/W. Well done.

    • Have you ever tried a henna design on your hands, Isa? The black & white images offered a different perception to the things we see. I love your collection of B & W pictures too. Thank you very much! πŸ™‚

  6. These are gorgeous — I love the hennaed hands — and the parasailing shot — and the children — and the gray sunset. Beautiful!

  7. Great collection of B&W images. The carvings and the henna images are my favorites.

  9. A series of wonderful black and white photos. My favourites are the one with the bulls on the rice paddy and the one with the youths paddling in a small river. Both have a natural and eye catching atmosphere.

  10. black and white, the two colors that color the world!
