black and white {3/52}

It’s funny, you would think that seeing how I come up with the prompts each week for focus52, it would be easy for me to also come up with the photographs to match. Right?

Yeah, not so much.

Most weeks, the prompts are just as much a challenge for me as they are for you. Honestly.

But I had a bit of fun this week with the black and white prompt …

Look at these beautiful creatures …


I took a gazillion photos of them (from the warmth of my car). So beautiful to watch.
I wonder if they get cold?

This man caught my eye as I was leaving the bank the other day. Again, taken all stalker-like from the warm safety of my car and a bit blurry to boot, but I liked the scene.

I wonder what’s going through his mind.

And then there’s this one. Always fun to play around with my little (but growing!) camera collection.

Thanks Ms. Shauna, for allowing me to force you into standing outside, freezing your butt off.
You’re a good sport.

    Beautiful horses! and beautiful snow. Even makes me miss it. Not much of that here in Oakland, CA. Makes me wonder, are my kids growing up deprived?

    I want an old camera like that!!!!!! And I had to giggle that you initially had a hard time coming up with photos for your prompt. Love what you ended up with!
