I thought about creating a few new photos for the week's subject, but instead decided that there were a few photos I had been thinking about converting to black and white, so why not use them here.
Another reason to use black and white is to hide some of the nuances of the surroundings.
One more photo, below, also had too much green and a mottled background in color. The conversion allows us to focus in on the expression of the dog. I would have liked a little more shadow in this image, making it a bit more dramatic, and I could have added it, but decided to leave the photo as is for now, and just do a straight conversion.
To see more black and white, start with Shae Pepper of Shae Pepper Photography. Look for the next link at the end of each blog, until you find yourself back here where you started. Enjoy your weekend!
