7 Days B/W Photo Challenge – Street Photography: Day 7


In honour of my 3rd blog anniversary this week, I´ve created a new Photo Challenge and hope that you will all join me!


And here are the rules of the “7 Days B/W Photo Challenge – Street Photography”:

  • Thank the person who´s nominated/tagged you and provide a link to their blog.
  •  Go out and take pictures of complete strangers for 7 days in a row and post one of them each day of the challenge (you can also post 7 photos in one post if you´re more comfortable with this).
  • The photos should be in b/w.
  • Nominate as many people as you like


This photo is my 7th entry:

    1. Thanks so much, Iris! Hehe! I have to admit to have felt a bit sneaky and like a spy when I did this shot. 😉 Luckily she hurried to catch the train right afterwards so will never know about it. 😉
      Happy weekend, dear friend! Hugs&love! 😀 ❤

        Good timing indeed – and speaking of that word the picture sorts has timeless parts – esp in black and white – the jeans – hair – shirt – hm

  1. Oh I want her t-shirt! Seriously, you have a keen eye for detail Sarah. That does not surprise me at all. You have a similar approach with your drawings and paintings. I’m loving this challenge.

    1. You don´t want to know how often I have the same reaction when I´m out and about. 😉 The day before yesterday I saw the most magnificent sandals worn by the woman in front of me in the check-out queue and had to ask her where she bought them – luckily she was gracious enough to share this information, and I will see if I can get my hands on a pair next week! 😉
      And thanks so much for your lovely compliment, you don´t know how much it means to me! Hugs! 😀 ❤

    1. Thank you very much, Lauren! It was such a lucky moment I had my camera ready because as soon as the escalator ended she ran to catch the train!
      Have a beautiful weekend too, dear friend! 😄 💞

  2. Obviously as a painter, you have the “eye” for photography too. I’ve enjoyed all of your b/w photos, but this is my favorite. Maybe because her stance (even from the back) says so much. Great job.

    1. Thank you! She’s gorgeous, isn’t she? Though I don’t know what she looked like up front. 😁
      And do you mean the writing in her shirt? I think it’s “I love (…)”. Would be awesome if I had catched the whole phrase, maybe it was even “I love you”! 😉

  3. Lovely shot Sarah. I really like how, though this whole challenge you have produced such interesting portraits that all tell us something about the subject, without focusing on their faces. That is a real talent xxxxx 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Su! I never knew it would be so much fun when I had the idea to do this street photography. It’s so different from my usual approach -paint and paper plus time – and half of the time I feel I don’t know what I’m doing but when I get home and start editing I see that it wasn’t as bad as I thought – which is perfectly thrilling to be honest! 😄 xxxxxxxx

      1. You have an artist’s eye for composition, and that helps so much. And with modern editing, most shots will have something that makes them worthwhile. Years ago, an artist friend told me that with every piece of work she does, she looks at it and tries to find one good thing. She tries to be objective about what isn’t goo, but focuses on the (maybe only) one thing she really likes and uses that to move forward. I thought that was one of the best pieces of wisdom I’ve ever been given. xxxxxx 🙂

      2. That is one brilliant piece of advice! From now on I will look out for that one good thing which should be more difficult for me as I always seem to concentrate on the mistakes I made. But at least I refrain from making it over if it’s an acylic which a friend of mine uses to do because I rather like to try anew. Keeping the imperfections is important I think, it honours what you were and what you could do back then, covering that up would be some kind of a lie in my view.
        Xxxxxxx 😊

      3. I’m the same, which is why I think I was given the advice. I’ve started dating work, and keeping really wobbly pieces to remind me of how much better I can get, as well as what I can do now.
        I guess if I had an expensive canvas and really hated what I’d done to it, I would cover it up, but probably not otherwise. 😀 xxxxxxx

  4. This one is absolutely gorgeous. You should enter this photo in a competition. A woman with cascading curls stands in sensual contrapposto to the vast strutted arc of the dome above her. Your inner Michaelangelo. Perfect ending for your 7 Days Challenge.

    1. Thank you very much, Shari! Wow! I haven’t even thought of photo competitions yet but had a quick look on the internet just yet and think it’s definitely worth a try. So thank you also for this lovely idea, my friend! And for it to be compared to Michelangelo is the highest honour!!! 😄
