Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #28: Black & White Photography

"Once the amateur's naive approach and humble willingness to learn fades away, the creative spirit of good photography dies with it. Every professional should remain in his hear an amateur."

-Alfred Eisenstaedt

NOTE: My schedule is getting super busy, and I am about to go into somewhat of a transition with my Internet access, so, I will be visiting your blogs on Sunday afternoons each week. I hope that is ok with everyone. I will still come by to see your entries, it will just be on Sunday. :) Is that cool with you?

Ok everybody, grab your camera, fire up your imagination, and show me some BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY. The subject matter is completely up to you. Do something a little Silly, Fascinating, Spooky, Gothic, or Artsy Noir... it's completely up to you! Just make it BLACK & WHITE.

Extra Credit:
Write a little about what it was like to for you to take a BLACK & WHITE photo as opposed to color.

**Please Read**
You have until next Sunday at 9:00 PM ET to take your photo, post it to your blog or journal, and comeback here with the direct link you your entry. REMEMBER I cannot accept a general link to your blog or journal it must be the direct link to the entry specific to this photo shoot assignment. No HYPERLINKS please. Also, please link back here, so folks can find the EMPS and play along with us!

Hey Carly, I just about didn't do this challenge, but I decided that I had to bring in the new season with a beach picture. So, here you go.

I hope that your schedule eases up a little sense in running ragged all the time.

Mine's up. (
and to answer your question of the week, if i could shoot any celebrity, right now it would be Bernard Madof ... love to get a picture of him in that tiny lil cell! lol other than that, I would of course love to do a shoot with Sean Connery. On top of still being handsome as hell and probably a really interesting guy to chat with, he has a very interesting face, and he has always seemed to work well with the camera.
