Inspiration: Black and White

We’re at the week three point in this 52 week challenge.  I’ll be entirely honest.  I’m having a tough time finding the extra time to devote to the challenge.  Life happens.  However, I am still committed to getting something submitted each week.

This week, we had to take a photo to be done in black and white.  The idea around it was one word: inspiration.  Well, when I can’t go out and shoot something out in the external world, I find inspiration in my world.  Realistically speaking, of of the more inspiring aspects of my life is my faithful pooch, Houdini.  Sure, I used a pic of him last week.  However, I had a great opportunity for a nice shot on Saturday morning with the light coming through the living room window.  So yeah, here’s my week 3 submission.

Here’s an alternate version of the same photo, but I didn’t think it was as dramatic.  Maybe I am wrong tho:

Here’s another one from that morning that didn’t make the official cut, but I’ll be damned if he isn’t handsome anyway:

And finally, here’s one from a couple weeks back that I wish I had taken this week so it was eligible for the challenge:
