Black & white images are definitely not dead. Many cameras even have a "monochrome" setting. Post your best image(s) that illustrates how black & white can, at times, create more of an impact than color.

Here's a reminder how to post to the assignment:
1. Become a Flickr member.

2. Take a self-portrait and upload it to your Flick account

3. On that photo's page, click the "all sizes" tab

4. Choose "Small"

5. Under the photo, it will say "Copy and paste this HTML into your webpage" - Select and copy that text.

6. Go to THIS post and in the "reply" box, paste the HTML script. Feel free to include a few comments about the shot after it.

7. Use the 'preview' function to make sure it worked, or click "post now" to submit it to the discussion!

wow, how esp like of you/me? I took this last night thinking the same thing about b&w I have some self portraits but would rather post this, I think its way more dynamic of a photograph.

Anyways, heres my pic, if the pen is mightier than the sword than here is my weapon of choice.

ball point pen with a spiral notebook of watercolor paper.

Reversed 18-70mm lens unknown AP.

I love B/W! This is my first submission, so I'm hoping I get this submitted right! This is a dear friend's daughter. I just started about a year ago with a Canon 30D. I have a long way to go and a lot to learn, but I'm lovin' every minute of it! Thanks for the opportunity to post!

Antwerp port: chair

This is from a trip to Antwerp, Belgium last September. I found this chair poised along the river. Looked like a nice place to take a rest.

Railside Graffiti
I've really been getting into B&W lately. In color, the graffiti in this image was really colorful and lent itself to color-channel manipulation when converting to B&W using Lightroom.

PA Sprint, Fall 2008
The original for this was in color. Bright blue jacket and bright red helmet. I think his look of concentration was lost in all the color.
