Sunday Stills-Black & White

The challenge this week was to choose two previous assignment topics and take B&W pics. But you could not use pictures you already submitted for those Sundays. Is that clear as mud?!


So, of course, I chose two related to animals. The first is for Animals of Husbandry. And I stayed true to the original assignment. I have two different animals in my picture.



The second one is for Pets. It's our neighbor's horse.
I didn't have a lot of time to throw these together. But I didn't want to miss another week so I scrambled to find something that would work.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

Great shots I like the second one the best. OK I am leary of cattle myself and that bull looks a little scary.

Nice job, capturing the white bird with the bull (or cow), very good contrast. The horse shot is just awesome.

Pony Girl said...

They're really great, the first one is amazing because of the black bull/white bird taking off, but I especially like the expression on the horse's face!

Patches said...

I like them both! Great job!

VioletSky said...

I laughed when I saw the first one - it looks as if the bird had bveen carefully cut out of the photo!!

But, I like how you throw.

Love both photos. The first one has such interesting contrast with the grass, bull and bird in flight. And the horse portrait is ... fantastic!

I looked at your other site, spectacular photos!

A bull and a bird - that's a pretty unusual combo - great shots.
