Black & White Photographic Challenge – Day 1

Over the weekend I was nominated by a friend of mine, Jeff Alu, to participate in a Black & White Photographic challenge that has gone viral on Facebook. So for 5 days I am to post a Black & White photograph on Facebook and each day nominate another photographer. Now the trick is to nominate a photographer that I know who explores B&W photography who has not been nominated yet (I am getting a bit late into the game).

For this photograph, I have studying this composition for a while and thought it might work with a selfie. Big concern was the fountain located behind me which provides the interesting appearing Spanish “hat”. Perhaps another reason I enjoy the photograph is that humorous appearance.

At the last moment Cooper jumped up beside me and gazed into the reflection as if to pose for this selfie. A serendipitous moment that has a hint of Surrealism.

The B&W photographer that I nominated was Julia Borissova.

Cheers!
