Thank you to my blogging friends at, Our Rumbling Ocean, who suggested I try the 5 Day Black & White Photo Challenge. Over the course of five days, it will be interesting to decide which photos will lend themselves to the drama of black and white.
I decided to search my archives for a dramatic photo for today’s post.
This photograph is one taken at Hoover Dam a few years ago during a road trip to the Southwest. In 2013, the structure of the water intake towers was readily in view. This is in stark contrast to where the water level was in 1999 when it skirted the towers just below the parallel concrete rings near the top of the structure.
The demand for water is not expected to diminish as multiple interests compete for the precious waters of the Colorado River. Lake Mead will not refill to prior levels any time soon (if ever). This is a pattern that repeats along countless water-ways around the world.
Is there a solution to the problem depicted by this black and white photograph?
There are only two rules for this challenge:
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.
On this, my fourth post, I invited Jim Holroyd365. Jim hosts an interesting blog, and is one to follow if you want to learn where Tbilisi is, view intriguing photos, find a good book review, and enjoy Jim’s good humor. Please be sure to check out this delightful blog… oh, and see if you can discover what Jim likes to collect while you are there 🙂
