Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Construction

I am very happy to join Cee’s challenge for the first time. This week’s topic is Construction.

Here is what is expected from us: “My first thought on this topic was road construction but you can have any type of construction you want. A person building a dog house to a skyscraper to making a road or repair of patch of asphalt. So have fun with this topic and I look forward to seeing what all you bloggers come up with. Use your imagination and creativity with this topic.”

I shot this construction worker having a cigarette break at this building site. I wish I had another lens with me as his deep expression caught my attention. I went for the moment despite the quality.

I didn’t have an appropriate lens for the photo, so the sharpness is not perfect. Editing it too much would have made it worse. I used a 14-42mm (equivalent to 28-84mm) and a mirrorless Olympus E-M10.


Using the same camera, I shot construction workers on the top of a skyscraper. They didn’t seem to work in safe conditions. That scared me.

I used LightRoom to improve contrast in both photos.

  1. What interesting shots you captured to describe ‘construction’…. The worker looks perfectly relaxed while hanging out perched high above … However indeed the roof spot looks rather treacherous!
    Have a great start to your Wednesday 🙂

        My Wednesday was good but uneventful too! At least the weekend is near …


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
