Take a Black and White Photo, Get a patch! Answered

Picture of

 Hello again.

It's time for another photo contest!
This month the theme is a nice broad one, just to get things going after the first one last month.

Black and White

This months theme is Black and White.
Try and focus on those distinctive shapes and defined shadows that make black and white photos pop.
Get into the mindset of what will look good when in black and white. A good contrast is normally a good basis for a black and white photo.

Any black and white photo is allowed, digital or analogue. Nearly all modern digital cameras have a black and white mode.


The one stipulation is that you have to go and take a new photo!
Not just upload an old photo.
The idea is to encourage you to take some new pics, opposed to showing off what we have done before.

Attached are a couple of shots I took today!

Every black and white photo uploaded gets a Patch!

If I missed giving you a patch last month, let me know in your comment, and I will send you one of each to make up.

Pretty, did you make them?

nope. I bought them from 3 rivers archery. All I did was mount the points.

Oh good, I was gonna post my bamboo arrow instructable, eventually, and those make mine look terrible.

 I'm absolutely terrible at mounting points. I had to wrap some jute cord around it to hide the hot glue...

 This was part of a multitude of pictures I took of Army Men portraying the battle of Stalingrad. The first is just the second one zoomed in and cropped, but they're some of my favorites form it.

Are we allowed a small cheat?

I took this about an hour ago, lifting the lid of the blue-tit box in our garden and poking the camera through for a moment.

There are actually six young blue tits in the nest, but two a quite small, and get sat on a lot.

I'm all that matters, right? ;D

I once tried to keep a nest of orphaned baby birds alive on worms I dug up from the backyard, cooing eep, eep, eep, eep, to get them to open their mouths. I fed them A LOT of worms, but they wound up not surviving despite my best efforts. :(

Of course (this is the second year blue tits have tried to raise a brood in the box - last year was a failure, two sad little half-fledged corpses).

 Is this your entry?

1. It seems to have found its way on as a reply
2. Its not black & white. Colour pick outs may be saved for another time!

Inspired by a certain avatar, i was curious how this would turn out.  Keeping my eye open for the flash wasn't as hard as I thought, but it does make me look a bit angry. :)

 Yeah, I must have taken about 30 odd shots. I had to use lots of external light, and some macro extension tubes. I also used it hooked upto my computer so I could use my iPod to trigger, and see what I was photo'ing with live view, with my other eye.
