#Project52Photos Week 9 Black & White

Project 52 BUTTON

I am loving this Project 52 challenge. It is holding me responsible for growing and actually picking up my camera. This week theme was one of my favorites. Black and White. I am so glad our hosts,  Marvelous MommySarah, and Angie, had this as a theme. The only problem now is- what to show you? So I have 3 pictures for you the first two are my favorites:

016

076

The first one is of a very special tiger. She came to our zoo years ago. They found her in the wild caught in a trap. As a result they had to amputate one of her legs, which saved her life. When I look into her deep brown eyes I can’t help but to see the longing in them. But she is happy. She is content and has had 3 litters of cubs since being at our zoo! The cub you see right below my tiger is one of the 3 lion cubs that were born back in November! They were so much fun to watch and take pictures of!

The last one I shared on instagram last Saturday. It was the reason for our trip to the zoo:

This weeks #Project52Photos theme is black and white. Tonight i see a lot of black and white #zoo #campout

We went to our zoo to spend the night! So Saturday night I was seeing a ton of black and white. We were sleeping in where our Penguins are! It was so relaxing falling asleep to the graceful swimming!

This weeks theme was definitely easier then last week’s Outtake theme!  I can’t wait to see the black and white that everyone else shares. If you have a photo share feel free to line up HERE

Next week’s theme- Self Portrait (eek!)

    We are going to “Out of Africa” zoo tomorrow for my son’s birthday. I am excited to take him. I love your pictures. I’m glad they were about to rescue that tiger and that she is happy baring cubs. Beautiful pictures.

      Thank you! And her eyes get me every time. You can’t help but to be drawn into them. Sad they had to take her from the wild- but happy they were able to save her.

    We were just talking about using black & white film. And then we realized, it’s probably hard to buy film. lol And THEN we dug out our old film camera… just because. 🙂 We’re going to use it for fun here shortly… maybe on a day trip to the city.

      I love doing black and white. Sometimes it just really brings out the true feel for the image. I try not to over use it though. There are some images best in color. And have fun with your film! I wonder where you can find any these days lol I would love to learn how to process my own negatives the old fashioned way so to speak.

      I agree- when done right they can make the picture more complete. I try to watch when I use it because I also believe that there is such thing as over doing it with black and white. Some pictures are just meant for color.

      Thank you! It was hard to choose just one of the lion cubs! I had so many fun shots of them playing!

      It was! I used to live in the same city as the zoo and went weekly. This was a whole new view of it for my son and I! Wish my daughter could of gone too. Maybe next time!

      Thanks! I love using animals for subjects. Wildlife and landscape is more of my kind of photography.

      Thank you! The sleep overs is something they have done for a long time. I went once when I was a kid (so about 20+ years ago lol) and I am glad my son had the same chance I did. This is not something that is easy to get into and experience!

    I love my kitties, yours just happen to be much much larger than my domestic ones. 🙂 I have four and each has it’s distinct personality. Isn’t it great being a momma to a feline furbaby?

    Beautiful!
    I love going to the zoo and photographing the animals. Doesn’t matter that I have a bijillion of them, they are so fun to take photos of.
    You really brought out their personalities I think too!
