Header Competition # 15 - Black and White

The header theme this week by Tom from England and is "no subject but a Black and White photo presentation". Mac,TomDarla and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. This was new to me so the choices were harder, I really like color in my photos but I give it a try. Go to the other sites to see their interpretation of this weeks theme. 


The Trumpeter Swan in the water was my first thought, the swan is black and white already.

Then I thought of a Morning Dove nesting in the white snow.

How about my white deer decoration from my front yard at Christmas time in the snow.

I finally decided on the local deer in the snow with the snow covering its face. This was right outside my bedroom window.

I like deer decorations. How do you lure them to your yard? I've tried the usual... you know, all types of vegetable decorations, artificial clover, fake apples, etc. Still, I just can't find the right decorations to lure them into my yard!

Nice B&W's I like that header.

Craver: I always use my pumpkins from Halloween to feed the deer. Have you ever tried the plastic ones in the yard?

Craver Vii said...

Hahahaha! Well I would if I could figure out how to get it off of my head! The handle keeps catching my chin!

Craver: You can just snip it with scissor, the deer doesn't need the handle.

Love the shots Tom!
For B&W I think your swan picture is right on! It's just my preference but I think the deer shot would look super in a sepia tone.
I'll go check out the others now. :)

Outside your window-amazing! I was just telling the girls about you and your deer this morning : )

Martha@Menagerie said...

Hey Tom, I didn't even think to ask - should I have a black and white up on my blog now or am I waiting until the next header challenge?
