The Brenda Photo Challenge (4-10-10) Black and White

I had every intentions of being very prepared for this challenge. I wrote the date down and had it sitting right on my desk so I wouldn't forget. That would have worked IF I was actually sitting at my desk. Lucky for me I was reading Donna's blog this morning and saw her entry.
So here are my entries
a white church in black and white
a white Easter lilly in black and white
 And a little white Westie in living color. A black and white photo challenge would not be complete without Duke.
Go to the challenge blog to see who else is participating.

Those are fantastic photos! I think that B/W photos really capture a lot of emotion.

Daniela said...

Ok, first and foremost, Duke is a doll! I love that church photo. I could look at it all day long.

Alesa Warcan said...

I wouldn't want to look at it all day, but I agree, that church shot is great! Nice post work on it too.

Donna said...

LOL, how funny that your dog is a perfect black and white subject! I love how you created the textured church image. Wowsers! And the flower is beautiful as well. OK, I think I've got a 3-way tie for my favorite!

gayle said...

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Spectacular shots Ann, and, of course you know that little adorable Westie is my favorite. Can he get any cuter?

Annie said...

Love the photos Ann! The little dog is such a cutie...glad he got a spot!

Ann said...

Kim, thanks, it doesn't take much for Duke to look cute

allotments4you thank you very much, I rather liked the lily myself

tahtimbo I totally agree with you. I love black and white photos

Daniela lol, that seems to be the general opinion on Duke. As for the church I have always been fascinated by that building

Alesa too much looking at one thing can cause you to miss out on something else, and thank you

donna yep duke is great either way, color or black and white. I used textures from shadowhouse creations for the church. love his stuff

gayle me too and thanks

lenox knits thanks,looks better in black and white too, I took it at work and the background seemed a bit distracting in color

junezach he sure is and he doesn't look bad in color either

grace lol duke's just such a popular little guy :)

jeanette thank you, yeah, I'm kinda stuck on that cute face of his

Thom thank you very much, doesn't take much to make the dog look cute. you have a great week yourself

beaded tail thanks Duke appreciates the votes for him :)

poetic shutterbug I kind of figured you would like him best :) I'm not sure but I think he gets a little bit cuter ever day.

Annie thank you. Duke has to get a spot otherwise his adoring fans miss him :)

Tammy said...

Aw I love your Duke! He is adorable!

Sharkbytes said...

Really lovely images, and Duke is such a character in color or B&W!

SquirrelQueen said...

Duke is absolutely adorable, what a cutie. Monochrome gives the church a very dramatic look, great shot.

Thanks for stopping by, I am running so far behind on visiting.

Ann said...

Tammy,he has that affect on people

sharkbytes yes he sure is and thanks

squirrelqueen I love the look of monochrome it can make a rather dull picture look quite striking sometimes. don't feel bad about running behind. I may be caught up on the blogs but way behind in everything else...lol
