150/366 Black & White Photography

I was about to do this evenings post, and having written the title I suddenly thought that perhaps I should have a B&W picture lined up. This is one I took earlier today. It was a cold and misty day, as you can see with a fair bit of the Spinnaker missing. As I arrived at the waterfront, the Janee W, a smallish tanker used to refuel the Brittany Ferries, and other commercial ships. Refuelling is called Bunkering. It appears that the name of the process is a hangover from the days of the coal fired steamships, when the coal for the ships was stored at the harbour in Bunkers.

Anyhow, today’s post is supposed to be about the latest issue of the B+W Magazine, which I finished reading on Friday. I’ve noticed with both this months B+W and Country Walking Magazines there is a lot of talk of the pandemic and how it is affecting the contributors. That they are able to produce an entertaining and educational publication during these awkward times is a tribute to them.

A common theme amongst several of the articles of this months issue of B+W Photography (Issue No. 248) is the suggestion of having a plan or a project to encourage people to get their camera out (doesn’t matter what camera, the phone is very much an accepted tool amongst professionals). The idea is that getting people to indulge in something that they enjoy doing, with a bit of a challenge aids mental health especially at the moment. I get the logic of that. As it happens, I think I’m OK, but I must admit it would be interesting to try something like that. I’m thinking about it, and may come up with a plan.

Some of the suggestions, such as going on a photography workshop were slightly impractical, but worth bearing in mind for the future. In the meantime, it was once again, a very nice & interesting read. The photos especially are always enjoyable. I do like the B+W medium.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
