Miss MacKenzie and her many faces.

This week’s Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge (CB&W) topic is Heads or Facial Features (human or animal).   I think the topic this week is fairly self-explanatory.  Have a lot of fun with this topic.  Sepia tones and selective color are always allowed in this challenge.  I just want you to have some fun with your photography.

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list at below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  For a great black and white photo look for contrast or highly textured subjects to photograph.

  1. Your photos are great, such nice shots on the right moments. I really like the girl with the sunglasses, she reminds me of my own youth when my sister and I used to put on our mother’s pumps and imagined that we were princesses or queens.

      • Hi Cee. I thought I would get on with post while waiting to leave for airport. (Going to Malta for a week) .
        However, can’t log into WordPress dashboard and getting white screen of death and fatal error message about memory exhausted.
        So, no blogging for me until I get back. I think I’m getting withdrawal symptoms already !!!!
        When I get back and find some expert help, I’ll do my own post about
        animals’ facial features!
        Kindest regards, Helen


  2. You are really a budding Ansel Adams, beautiful shots. I find b/w really gives us a chance to experiement. By the way I had to change one of my photos at the last minute, I missed the bit about heads only.


  3. I am loving the eagle photo; it’s so beautiful! All your photos are lovely.


  4. Well this challenge gave us lots of scope! Needless to say I love the eagle shot and the little girl ‘in the sky’ – a composition that really works! I also loved the pug faces.
    I have pinged my entry with a variety of dogs, other animals and humans.


  5. WP was not letting my comment load, but I was trying to tell you that your photos are beyond beautiful. The photo of the Eagle should be licensed and sold!
