MOSTLY TAILS AND A TONGUE, IN BLACK & WHITE – Garry & Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge:
Tongues and Tails


Garry got the best horse’s tails, but I got Duke’s tail and tongue. He has an amazing tail. Not a half bad tongue either.

I also had some great cow tails too, but my favorite didn’t work in black and white. He was so patchy, black and white, he literally blended with the foliage. You could see his tail, but his entire head got lost in the dappled foliage. So that particular cow didn’t make the cut.

      1. …. an EleDog maybe?! 🙂 Wonderful captures, all of them – sometimes I think that b&w is more colourful and compelling in many ways. It’s the concentration on the important bits and I often find way more shades and graduations.

        1. As long as there are some contrast and texture with which to work. I had one cow that went invisible in black & white. To be fair, I picked her because she had such an interesting set of markings and didn’t look anything like the other cows. But in dappled sunlight, she disappeared. Fine in color — gone in monochrome.

    1. Thank you. Garry did well with the horses, but he got really close and talked to them. I usually do better with the dogs because I wait until they are quiet before I try and shoot. He tries to get them on the fly, but they are fast fliers.

    2. Cee, it was really fun snapping the horses. “Silver” noticed me and approached, offering head shot angles. The masked man was probably behind the tree, whispering instructions.
