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.


  1. Like the black and white photos! Duke is looking cute today too! :)

  2. wow these are great shots...Duke is adorable as ever but my favourite is the Lily...good luck with the challenge

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

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

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

  6. 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!

  7. I love black and white!! Beautiful!!

  8. Gorgeous lily shot. and Duke looks so vivid and pops off the screen.

    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

    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
