Both Elsie at Ramblings of a Writer, and Lucile at Sights and Insights invited me to join the Seven Days of Black & White challenge. The rules are simple:

“Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day.”

If you haven’t already taken part, please consider it — especially if black & white is not your usual “thing” photographically.

I’d like to invite Philip at Cambodian Beginnings to join in (no pressure naturally, but you know that).

Philip’s images of everyday life in Cambodia are fascinating and sometimes very moving.
