Black and White









This weeks challenge is my second favorite to do (my first favorite is macro!) I LOVE the way you can turn such an ordinary picture into black and white - making that photo a really awesome photograph! Can wait to see what everyone has posted! Happy Mothers Day!

You said it exactly, B & W makes the ordinary spectacular. I love the photos of your horses. The way their energy seems to align with each other. Makes me appreciate how B & W cuts to the essence in a photo.

Thanks for dropping by, it was a close call between the dog and the dandelion, until I saw the human-sized chicken! What a shot! Made me laugh.

The dandelion fluff makes me think of alternate universes!

But the pics of the horses really POP!

Great pictures!
Is that a Brittney I see? I grew up with them and loved hunting with them. They make great family love-bugs as well.
The chicken shot made me laugh. That's about all I can get of my chickens. They always get right up in the camera because they think it's holding snacks.:)

theegggather said...

Really good shots. That chicken is getting up close and personal. I especially like the RR crossing sign.

I'm thinking I missed you the first few times around and now that chicken is out to get me.

We are getting to be a large crowd, aren't we?
