Black and White Photography Challenge: Day 1

Elizabeth over at Tea and Paper recently invited me to complete the five-day Black and White photo challenge.  When I got her invite, I started to panic as the last time I took a black and white photo was before the days of colour cameras becoming affordable, so now you know just how long ago I am talking about.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.
2. Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.

Now Elizabeth came up with some stunning black and white photography, and I was so impressed that I contacted her for some help with the challenge.  She told me about a few apps for the iPhone so I could take photos in black and white, and it was not long before I was using my brand new app and taking pictures.

I could not resist using our dog, Toby, as a model for my first photo for this challenge.  This photo of him was taken on our recent weekend trip to Devon. He was sat in our room looking out towards the beach and sea.  He loves to run along the beach but, like me, is not at all keen in going in to the sea.

I’d like to invite Claudette at To Search and to Find to take up the black and white photo challenge.  She posts some wonderful photography on her blog which I am always impressed with.  Whenever I see any of her photos, I feel as if I am standing right there in front of the object she has photographed.  Plus, she has recently got herself a brand new camera which I know she is still experimenting with.  Claudette has also just announced she is having her head shaved to raise money for Leukaemia Research so, like me, please pop over to her blog and sponsor her for this very worthwhile cause.

Of course blogging is all about fun, so the invite to take up the challenge is optional to all those I am nominating this week.
