It’s Not All Black And White!

This month’s photo challenge theme was “Black and White.” I began by taking pictures of things that were black and white. And then I remembered my camera has a black and white setting. Something I never think to use.

This challenge gave me a new perspective on how I can capture images in a completely different way. I never would have thought to take black and white pictures of surfers or birds.

This photo challenge was a happy surprise, as it taught me that photography doesn’t always have to be black and white… because you can take your pictures in black and white!

2.  The largest staircase I have ever seen coming off the dunes of Corolla.  It will be the one I visit immediately after a hurricane.  I just don’t see how it can make it through!

3.  My son purchased a pirate flag the first summer he stayed at the beach house.  He flew it until it split through the middle.  I presented him with a new pirate flag last month.  The old one is in a place of honor at the house.

4.  We had a week or two when several horseshoe crabs washed up dead.  There is a strange beauty in their alien-like features.

5.  This seagull fought off a few others to get this tasty little black drum.  He was looking at me saying, “This is MY tasty meat!”
