5 day Black and White Challenge

My great friend and fellow Creative Kym Briskey has nominated me over at Facebook to take part in the 5 day Black and White Photo Challenge. 

Her timing was perfect because it's been an incredibly long time since I picked up my DSLR, yet in the space of 24hours I had to do a kids/pets photo shoot for a friend (OMG!) and also do this challenge. 

My first pic for the challenge isn't a new shot. It's one that's been sitting on my camera for 12 months or so waiting for me to either use it or delete it. So it's an old shot, but a newly processed one.
This cool chap is one of the resident Ostrich's at our local zoo... He's very sweet :) 

There are so many people I'd love to nominate to also take part in the challenge, but I've settled on nominating Caroline Fournier . I've always loved her photography - she has a great way with colour processing that makes her works so recognisable. I like to refer to it as "the Caroline effect" :)
So Caroline, if you're up for it, I'm nominating you to tackle the 5 day Black and White challenge with me. 

No need for them to be new works - just black and white!
