My Day Five entry in the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge , folks!  This has been a great exercise for me, and I thank +Deb Uscilka for challenging me.  I nominate +Ken Toney for the challenge!  I hope he's up for it.

This is picture of my niece as a flower girl at my nephew's wedding a couple of years ago.  She was supposed to scatter rose petals down the walkway (outdoor wedding), but froze up at the last minute and got all shy.  I did all the work in Lightroom, and had a tough time with some sun dappling on her arm.  So I went with the white vignette to help hide it.  It was tightly cropped, too, as there was a bunch of distractions in the background.

Well, yesterday I went with smooth and stucco stone textures in black and white.  Today, it's glass and chrome for Day Four of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge .

This was taken on the cruise ship Allure of the Seas two years ago when my wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.  It's a detail shot of the cabin balconies that overlook the inside of the ship.  Processed in Nik's Silver Efex Pro 2 and Lightroom 5.6.

Day Three of my pictures for the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge

I took this a few years ago in LA at the Getty Center.  An awesome museum to visit (put it on your bucket list, +Kalebra Kelby!) overlooking the city.  I liked how the sunlight was playing off the stone façade on the side of one of the buildings, lighting up this cross design.  Processed in Nik's Silver Efex Pro 2 and Lightroom 5.

Thanks to +Deb Uscilka for getting me to look through photos for this challenge!

My Day 2 submission for the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge !  I wish I had some info on this flower, but it was a few years ago.  It was taken out in LA during a visit to the Arboretum.  Processed with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and Lightroom 5.6. How am I doing, +Deb Uscilka? :-)

Thanks to +Deb Uscilka for getting me thinking about photos for this challenge!
