Black and Whie Sunday -Repost March 10, 2013



this post had 36 comments back 2 years ago, there are only 7 of those still reading my blog. Thus a Repost.
Judy, A.K.A. Squirrel Queen, asked if I ever took black and white with the camera, the answer was no, i don't know if the Rebel will take black and white.... Well, yes it does.... I tried the jungle shot first


then I aimed the camera at the Jungle Keeper and got a scowl  (the spots on the shirt are from throwing chlorine into the pool when the wind was blowing in his face)


  (yes, I could have removed said spots, but why bother)



a Stop now scowl...


and as I begged for a small smile, this was as good as it got.....he Almost Smiled

For some reason, the comment form won't open for me. I attempted here on this post three times, and then on the previous post once. Nothing. Then, I got an idea to try and right click to open in a new window. THAT worked.

What a grump!! You mentioned that the area we live in is the same temperate zone as yours in Florida...well, we two experience the same "temperate" zone with our mates! LOL [Bud never wants to 'smile']

Good morning, Sandra! Your hubby looks good in B&W! I like the last shot the best. My hubby does not like me to even take his photo. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

Bob is so photogenic that I don't understand why he doesn't like to have his photo taken!

Love his tiny smile and he does such a good job as the Jungle Keeper.
Great black and white.

Great portraits! Pity he's not so keen on posing :)

Great photos of Bob, his non smile made me smile for some reason. The black and white shot of the leaves is lovely. Stay warm down there, hope you get your heat back soon.

Bob's face has so much character. I seldom get a smile out of my husband Mark. I do love B & W photos.

A lovely repost, there are not so many people blogging these days, I get far more attention paid to Instagram posts these days than blog ones!

If Bob is like Roger, his t-shirt would not look like him if it didn't have spots on it from something! LOL He did make a nice subject.

Ruth Hiebert said...

The pictures of Bob look especially good in black and white.

Ann said...

I have never bothered taking black and white pictures with the camera. I've always preferred to do the conversion in photoshop. These are great. Good pictures of the jungle keeper even with his scowl

Gail said...

Love them all!

Those are good pictures of Bob, even if he doesn't want to smile.

Grandma C said...

Jungle Keeper cute name. Maybe you need to tell him one of your goofy jokes to get him to smile. Mine might smile for me... but it most likely would be a silly smile.

SweetMarie said...

Love the nickname "Jungle Keeper"!! Great pics!
