Eye Candy 2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf 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:


Which path should I take?


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 cordeliasmom2012@yahoo.com or notcordeliasmom@aol.com

    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.


  2. 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.

    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 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.
