I was tagged to participate in the black and white photo challenge for a second time in recent weeks. Of course I could not say no to a good creative challenge, so I decided to participate, again. What I loved about this challenge is that it forced me to go back into my photo archives and really look at a lot of photos (hundreds at least), and decide what would make a good b&w image. I looked for subject matter with good texture, shadow and contrast, as not any old image would suffice as decent b&w photography. Some are as recent early this year, while others go back as far as from a decade ago.
