Sunday Stills

Sunday Stills - Black & White

This week's Sunday Stills challenge is Black & White with a Twist. We could choose any two challenges we've done before and shoot them in B & W or in color and convert them to B & W. No photo that had been used before could be used for this challenge.

Yesterday was a big day outside for us with lots of photos taken...it was hard to just choose two!!

But, my first choice is Plants & Flowers...or Macro...which seem to go hand in hand a lot of the time.

I found these wild blue bells in the sagebrush. The neat looking seed plant to the left is cheat grass from last year...not such a neat plant...a nasty weed that is no friend to dogs, horses or cows, so looks are deceiving.





My second choice is In Motion. Stetson was showing off his stuff as he came down the hill for water. He always runs with his ears pinned back like he's gonna kick some a**...I guess you can do that when you're a donkey ;~)



You can see more Black and White photo challenges by checking out the links in the comments here.


And, as it is Mother's Day today, I want to share a darling photo of my late Mother and her brother. It was taken in the late 1920's.


Happy Mother's Day to all~~

I keep coming back and chuckling over the donkey photo. I'm finding that B & W reveals the possible story in am image. Beautiful work!
