July Photo Thread

I had a couple ideas but settled on "Black and White Abstract" as the theme for July.This should be able to cover a wide range of subjects, styles, etc. (i.e.; macro, architecture, texture, etc.). So let's run with it and see what people come up with.

The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try making it an image from the last year.

Voting:
- Vote for your top 3
- No voting for yourself

And if you are the winner one month ... you're in charge the month after the next. For example ... if you win in January, you're in charge of March. If you win in April, you're in charge of June.
You pick the theme, you count the votes, you announce the new winner.

^ = A very nice and highly regarded SLR - it was produced over a period of about 18 years (unbelievable in our days). It has one of the brightest finders, I ever looked through. Do you still use it ?

A nice read about the X700 : The Rokkor Files - The Minolta X-700

Ditto. I used to LOVE shooting B&W back in the day with a film camera, but I've never been terribly thrilled with my conversions in the digital world, so I've been shooting mostly color for a while. I have a couple of ideas of what I'd like to do, but still thinking through it.

Nice one Machka. I had a tree shot I was thinking of using as well. Still struggled with this and it was my choice. Doh!
