The good folk over at de Wets Wild have bestowed the honour of making me the first target of their challenge. Target may not be the most appropriate choice of word but it seems just right in this instance. Really, I’m thrilled that they have chosen me above all others as their first choice.
Black and white is so good… if you have the correct eye for the job. I’m reminded of my experiments a few years ago with a real film camera. What I remember most about those experiments is the results of a misty morning black and white outing.
Let me show you a few of the pics I posted then… I’m sure you’ll agree with me that black and white can add its own moodiness to the landscape without us even trying too hard.
I think I need to dig that old camera out of the press again… maybe do a star trail or long exposure. Or, why not do more black and white?
I’ve retained the original captions…
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.
Who do I select to go first? At times like this, I almost automatically default to two ladies who have been supporting OMBH from the beginning. However, as my UK friend does not post daily, I don’t want to irk her so it has to be the lady over the pond in the icy wonderland north of the Great Lakes. Sheila has been a constant inspiration for almost four years so I sincerely hope she’ll take up the challenge. Even if she doesn’t, I urge you to visit her site, you’ll come away with a large dollop of inspiration, that’s for sure!
PS: It would be very rude of me to mention my UK friend and then not introduce her… as I said earlier, Sallyann has been a supporter of OMBH from the beginning. I do hope the good lady takes up the challenge but as I’ve also said, I don’t want to wind her up…
