Weekly challenge #526

Weekly Challenge #526 - Transportation in B/W

Challenge #525- Flowers in B&W produced such an impressive set of small subjects in a classic B&W mode I'd like to stay with that mode but open the subject matter to much larger subjects in their recognizable environments and in a broader category and see where that leads.

I propose all types of transportation -- land, sea and air -- in B&W with emphasis on framing, composition and technique that reflects the age and the environment of the subject. I.e., a horse-drawn carriage or wagon in the rural or urban setting in which it's at 'work'. An auto, aircraft, boat, bicycle in its present condition. Something that says "That's where that vehicle belongs" and in B&W as well.

The challenge closes on Saturday, March 6th.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

A few examples:

For thos that do not know, that is in Tunisia.

It is an older photo, so it has my name on it . I stopped doing that.

Arnulfsteg is a newly built footbridge across... well, you see what it crosses. We are looking towards the City Center. I used the Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG, which never stops amazing me.

This is a B and W (well sepia) rendition of a rather nice sunset shot taken on the Gloucestershire and Warickshire Railway. The train is an "auto train" whcich can be driven from the engine or from a drivers compartment in the rear of the coach. The fireman of course has to remain in the loco to maintain steam pressure by firing and using the injectors, but the main loco controls (regulator, cut-off, brake) can be activated remotely by mechanical linkages.

From a slide taken in about 1974 with my old Mamiya Ranger. This was near the Malawi/Mozambique border, a long way from the nearest road. The front wheel of the Land Rover had dropped into a gully that had eaten into the trail. Fortunately we had some equipment and we built a little retaining wall, filled the space, jacked the wheel back onto the trail and we were on our way a few hours later. The sort of place where you might expect to find a Land Rover!
