If you read my post yesterday (and why didn’t you?), you know that I have accepted the 5-day black-and-white challenge. I won’t repeat everything here (since you already read that post, didn’t you?).
I want to start off with today’s invitation for another blogger to join the fun. I hereby nominate Dan Antion of the blog, No Facilities. Dan had the courage to follow not only this blog, but to also follow me on Flickr.com – and he even favorited some of my photos on Flickr.com, the silly man. Having seen his photography, I am honored that he would risk his eyesight looking at mine.
So, Dan Antion – if you’re willing and have the time, please join us in the black-and-white challenge. To reiterate the rules, participants must publish black-and-white photos on 5 consecutive days and invite another blogger to the challenge on each of those days.
And now, for today’s photos.
In Dan Antion’s honor, here is the black-and-white version of a photo he faved on Flickr.com:
Thanks to Doobster pointing out that editing software came with my new camera, I have finally learned how to put my name on my photos. I always wondered how Marilyn Armstrong (of the blog, Serendipity) and other bloggers did it. And now I can, too. Woo-hoo!
Naturally, Teddy Rosalie has to be part of my new photographic life:
I was amazed that some photographs which really sucked in color look pretty cool in black and white:
Remember that fan picture from yesterday? Looks better in black-and-white, doesn’t it?
Join me again tomorrow to find out what else I’ve learned. For now, I need to review my reading list to see which of my blogging colleagues (a) do their own photography; (b) haven’t already participated in the challenge; and (c) don’t already hate me.
I love to hear from my readers. You may comment on this post, comment on my Facebook or Twitter pages, or email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

So that’s the price of following 🙂
I am honored to be challenged but I’m going to wait until later in the week to begin. I love the photo with the dog and the caption is priceless. Good luck with this series.
There’s no deadline for accepting, Dan. I’m pleased that you’re considering it, and I look forward to seeing your photos.
It’s a whole new world, isn’t it? Software! It is empowering 🙂 Love the big dog in snow! I’m sorry, however, about the snow. We got it here, too.
I’m having a lot of fun with it. You’ll love tomorrow’s post even more.
Alrighty then, CM. You’ve discovered your camera’s software and learned how to attach your name to picture. You’ve come a long way in a short time!
I’ve always been a quick learner, once I put my mind to it.

I am amazed at how altering something to black & white can so radically change the perspective of an image!
Yes, it surprised me, too. Some of the pictures I took in color were really crappy, but when I converted to black and white, they look great! I always wondered why anyone would bother with black and white these days – now I know.

The toilet paper roll shot looks awesome in B and W CM. As does the pic of Cody. Nice job.
Actually, they’re paper towels, But either way, I think the reflection worked out well.
