Can you believe January is o-v-e-r?! Didn’t the year just begin yesterday?
Now that the pesky start of the semester out of the way, maybe, I can make time for other important things, like blog posts, poetry, and photography.
It’s been months since I shared one of my monochrome swaps. The latest–completed earlier this month–was ‘animals in monochrome” in the “A Thousand Words” group on swap-bot. Grstamping, my partner, sent an envelope full of black and white goodies that someone quickly claimed for his collection of animal photos. Seriously. I was left with the note about the photos. I was “allowed” to scan them, at least.
Grstamping has been focusing on photographing animals lately, so she had a lot to share. She sent a number of aquatic animals– [Click an image for a closer look]
And cute rodents–
I’m torn between the chipmunk and the octopus tentacles as my favorite. It’s hard not to love “cute,” but the tentacles are interesting.
I shared photos of our sweet-natured donkey and horse, Esau and Barnabas. They’re always game for a photo opportunity.
“Animals” was actually the seventh swap in the monochrome series hosted in our little group. I’ll get around to posting “Trees in Monochrome” and “Clouds in Monochrome” eventually.
