#Monomad challenge: Highlights of some Black and White Photographs.

in Black And White โ€ข last month

Hi all ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

Today I want to share with you highlights of some random Black & White photographs I took over the years. They are โ€œmy entry for the #monomad challenge" all photographs are taken with my (late) Canon eos 550D with 18 - 135 mm lens.

Letโ€™s start with this photograph of some big teethโ€ฆ
Taken 14 July 2013. I just love observing them, here you see one sunbathing in the sun. Getting warm again after the swim.

If we look up in the trees you can capture more wildlife. Like this crow high up in the treetops.
Taken April 2014.

On an early misty morningโ€ฆ the sunbeams were trying to come through the mistโ€ฆ it made for a pretty sight.
Visiting friends in America ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

On a beach in the Netherlands I found this seagull.
It was looking amused at what I was doingโ€ฆ you can guess that part. Of course I was photographing the surroundings and objects I saw around me.

Living up in the mountains of Iznรกjar Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ for a whileโ€ฆ my neighbours cat. April 2015
In the beginning she was shy and nervous, but grew towards me. I could sneak in some photographs from time to time. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜

With this last photograph of a flower I want to sayโ€ฆ bye bye for now ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Š

And thatโ€™s all for todays โ€œshort postโ€, I know you are used to long posts from meโ€ฆ but why not a change once in a while ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope you enjoyed my entry into the challenge.

Alligator Loki??? ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿค—๐Ÿคฃ
Just kidding, you are an amazing photographer. Outstanding. I am not a pro, is it a crocodile or alligator? I never see the difference, shame on my head. But this allicroc Pic is marvelous. Rehived. Hugs to ya

Very cool Loki ๐Ÿ˜Ž
They can look very similar depending where they come from. This one is a crocodile. But allicroc is cool too hahaha
Thanks a lot @akida ๐Ÿ˜ have a great Sunday further ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿปโ˜€๏ธ
Hugs back ๐Ÿค—

Sweet shots Jackie! The croc was that on a wild live reserve? never seen one lol
Loving the misty morning photo!

Thanks a lot @joetunex ๐Ÿ˜
Kind ofโ€ฆ it wasnโ€™t a cage, but more like a super large area that they created for them to feel close to their normal habitat. But that is almost not real anyway in my opinion.
It was a beautiful morning, slowly the mist cleared upโ€ฆ it looked mystical.

How is your weekend going? Hope all well ๐Ÿ˜โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป

Kind ofโ€ฆ it wasnโ€™t a cage, but more like a super large area that they created for them to feel close to their normal habitat.

I see. must be a beautiful experience.

It has been a very cold weekend, the whole of Saturday was under the blankets ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ,today cold but yesterday was worse, other than the cold its been a good weekend thanks and yours?

Thatโ€™s bbbbrrrrrr coldโ€ฆ keep warm! @joetunex
Here the opposite. Today 31 degrees Celsius pppffffff warm ๐Ÿฅต especially having to go out for grocery shopping etc. it truly feels like summer came weeks to early.
So far the weekend has been really nice. Been out and about a lot. ๐Ÿ˜
Tomorrow back to work and multitasking hahaha ๐Ÿคฃ

That first image is copyright! How dare you post a picture of me before my first coffee of the day!

What do you mean? @nathen007
You want to see all my shots of that day and moment that I took with my camera? Didnโ€™t see you thereโ€ฆ only another family.
This photograph was for sure taken by me.
I can proof this.

I was teasing! Sorry, I forget everyone is not native English speaker because you are so fluent.

I was mocking myself! I said the alligator looks exactly like me when I wake up and before I drink my coffee!

Sorrrryyyy, I didn't mean to upset you. My joke was lost in translation!

ย last monthย (edited)

It sure was lost in translationโ€ฆ so sorryโ€ฆ for misunderstandingโ€ฆ yes English is my 4th language hahaha in learning order. So sometimes this brings some interesting situations along. As proven once again ๐Ÿ˜‰ still learning as I didnโ€™t have it in school.

I truly thought you meant it when reading it. I missed the โ€œofโ€ bitโ€ฆ one of the things I get wrong โ€œfrom or ofโ€ hahaha no harm done.
I just learned again something ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค“

Aha got you nowโ€ฆ before the coffee bit. Me too ๐Ÿ˜Ž canโ€™t work without.

Happy Monday further ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿปโ˜€๏ธ

4th language? Incredible! How embarrassed am I. Most English native speakers can't even speak English very well!
Have a great week :-)

Thank you kindly @nathen007 ๐Ÿ˜Ž doing my best.
Lived in 5 countries so far.
When I was in school I didnโ€™t like languages wasnโ€™t even good at them, so dropped English when we could chose out of German and English next to Dutch. My mistake hahaha I thought as German was my first spoken language it would be easy to chose that when I lived in the Netherlands and went to school.
Now many many moons later I see it was a wrong choice. Learned English through the telly, music and speaking it since 2011โ€ฆ so basically the parrot fashion way. Now writing here, makes me discover words are different than I thought. And pronounce them. When I speak them, to when I write. Like heart and heard. To and tooโ€ฆ Or built and buildโ€ฆetc. I keep muddling them up hahaha
If you see something that doesnโ€™t add up in my writing, feel free to correct me ๐Ÿ˜Ž it does help.

Butโ€ฆ life is a long learning curve ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ you are never to old to learn.
