Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Cee’s Black and White photo challenge: All About Nature


Once in awhile I like to mess around with black and white images. Most of the time I look for stark images with clean lines and a big contrast between the darks and lights. Kind of ultra modern.

But I also like nature in black and white, so when I saw Cee’s challenge I went looking for something from my archives that would fit the bill. And, as you know, I have a LOT of bird images so I decided to pull this Sandhill crane from a visit just last month to my favorite bird park. It was all about the shadow when I took the image, and I think it’s the shadow that makes this a great black and white.

I hope you like it too! Thanks, Cee, for the challenge!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  3. The shadow is really cool!


  4. Great shot. I’ve never been to a bird park.


  5. I do like it. And you are so right about that shadow.


  6. I agree — the shadow.


  7. Yep, the shadow. Only the shadow knows! Remember that radio program? Ah, maybe I’m dating myself. 🙂 When I saw your photo, my immediate reaction was to check and double check and make sure the shadow in your photo wasn’t moving, wasn’t morphing into something else. Shades of “Only the Shadow Knows” and/or “Twilight Zone”. Nice photo. 🙂


  8. I’m so happy you took Cee up on this challenge — yes, it definitely hit the mark. Well done!
