BIRDS IN BLACK & WHITE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Bird

Birds look either great or awful in black & white. Much depends on the background. If it’s busy with trees and all sorts of other jungle, it can be very difficult.

So I went for the simplest construction — birds against the plainest background I could find.

    1. I have seen herons this year, but no swans. I think they are just hiding on the other side of the pond. It’s a matter of luck what birds I see. If they are out, they swim right over to us. They are expecting treats. Just like the dogs, but huge and white! The herons are only interested in the fish and as long as we don’t make much noise, they don’t mind my hanging around 🙂

    1. Birds come out well in black and white. I love doing them in monochrome. I feel exactly the opposite about flowers which I strongly prefer in color. Also, we are lucky. We have birds that show up well against the dark water.
