This is the last in the monochrome series. For those who have stuck with me throughout the full effort, thank you so very much! You are all wonderful and very kind.
A special thank you to Norma at Emovere and Virginie at Darwin on the Rocks for passing the Five Day Monochrome Photos Challenge on to me. I had not thought that I would enjoy or learn as much as I did through the exercise and pursuing it was something that I would not have done without your encouragement.
For my last kick at this particular cat, the photo of this young man was taken while he was having a snack at Old Sturbridge Village and I was having a coffee. He was incredibly photogenic and I wanted his portrait very much. At one point he stopped and seemed to invite me to take a shot, so I did. Thereafter he grinned wildly and leaned over to his mother and whispered what had happened. All three of us waved and we carried on our separate ways.
On this last day of my challenge I am passing the challenge on to two people: 1) SeeingSpotsPhoto, a very gifted and unique young photographer who has the byline in her photo, “Will work for photos”…someone, in short, modeled after my own heart and soul. You can see her work at Seeing Spots Photography. And also to 2) Tiny, an innovative and original nature photographer with the neatest username this side of a mouse, at Tiny Lessons Blog.
I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photos selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
