B&W in Colour Crows at Norm Schoenthal Island
I let myself get talked into accepting this current 7 day challenge on Facebook. This is my day two photo, before conversion to B&W. I was at first resistant, naw I ain't gonna do this, but I went ahead and started because I like Gerry, my challenger. But now that I have started I think I am enjoying it. I have often thought I would like to accept the challenge that Michael Johnston puts out on his blog The Online Photographer; One Lens One Camera One Year. That would be a prime lens. This is shorter and simpler, so I am going for it. Thanks Gerry.
A day for the birds. These two woodpeckers flew around me for several minutes playing. It may have been coincidence, but I felt honored anyway. I took a lot of photos but this is my favorite. My lens is not long enough nor sharp enough to do them justice. In this photo they were maybe 10 feet away.
