Black & White Sunday: Traces of the Past Y2-08

Traces of the Past is a recurrent photo challenge theme on this blog. It runs monthly, one month in colour, the other in B&W. This month it is time for the Black and White Traces of the Past.

I love my town, and the view bellow is very dear to me, despite the efforts of modern architects to ruin it. Traces of the past are still there, and it is comforting to look at them. The world we live in keeps changing, and some of these changes are a step in a wrong direction.  In my images I will try to focus on nice aspects of this place without cloning out what is already there, whether a part of the good or not so good past.


I would appreciate if you could join me for another Black and White Sunday. There is only one more B&W Sunday before the end of the year, and it will be next Sunday.  The 18th December I am taking a day off and the Sundays after that fall on Christmas and the New Year.

I am planning on continuing with this challenge in 2017 too, but there are still three more Thursday’s Specials this year to look forward to. I will be posting the news on Scheduled challenges page.

If you want to participate, please:

  • make a B&W photo post on today’s theme before next Sunday, 11 December

  • link it to this challenge post and tag it   #blackandwhitesunday

  • leave a comment under this post (pingbacks are not comments)

Wishing you all a happy and relaxing day!

Weekly Photo Challenge: MINE

What follows is my response to the challenge described in the following lines:

Mine. Is there a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about? Is it a feeling you feel when you look at the photo, or perhaps an unwillingness to share? I get rather possessive about that first cup of coffee in the morning. It’s definitely mine and I want it all to myself. 

Share a picture that means MINE to you!” (Sara Rosso)

I feel so possessive of my view that night in Valetta, Malta that I won’t even share it with you. You only get to see a twinkle in my eye, cause the view is all mine, mine…..
