So, it's February. Already?! Obviously, February is "the month of love," and Valentine's Day happens to be a mere five days away. I was going to go with hearts, but then I decided not to be cliche, and try to think up my very own idea.
This month's challenge is black-and-white love.
...In other words, you can capture anything you like that shows love--your sister cuddling her kitty, a bride and groom sharing a kiss, an older couple holding hands, a mama horse nestling her baby, a girl holding up her hands in a heart-shape, two good friends...or (this is an update, since so many people are doing it), it can be something you love. It just has to be in black-and-white.
Because if you haven't noticed, I'm a black-and-white kinda girl. :]
Bonus points (er, more gasps from me) if you use your black-and-white creatively. Like, instead of just editing your photo plain, original black-and-white, use different tones--sepia, daguerreotype, if you have them, different color filters on your camera (I just got a very awesome purple hues filter).
So. Grab your camera (or your computer's picture folders, whatever is most handy), take an amazing shot, and then come back here and link up your blog post, flickr photo, or whatever you want to use to link it up. Just fyi:
-"Linking up" means to copy & paste the link to your blog post containing your photo, or the link to your photo on flickr, into the linky box below. Just submit your name, and voila! You're all "linked up."
-Please include the button in your post, or beneath your flickr (etc.) photo, give the link to this challenge. That way, others can join in, too!
-If you can, visit other entries and give them some support. :) Everyone likes a comment or two!
Have fun--I can't wait to get started. :) This challenge ends on February 27th, 2012. Finalists will be announced by the 29th, and we will all vote on a winner the following week. But the 'contest' is just a side thing: the main goal of a challenge is to get your creativity flowing!
