Merry Christmas & Best of luck to all of you...

The all important rules:

3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Wednesday.

What a charming, thoughtful and very apt theme for the final B&W challenge to be judged this year.

Maybe as part of the entry we should post a link to the image from her portfolio that inspired our subject for the week.
I took as my inspiration the fact that Alison was a cat lover. The subject of my entry is a wandering stray who turned up 7 years ago and adopted us. Not allowed upstairs or on the bed, obviously .....

I hope this is taken as meant, a tribute to Alison's sense of fun.

Hehe! Not hidden, Somnath, just stripped out by the software as this is a composition of 2 images - the subject transposed onto a new background.
I have updated the info to include date and time.Wink

Not So See Thru

I had to go back to page 34 until I found something that inspired me, not that there aren't many inspiring photos in the previous 33 pages but (A) I didn't bank of finding too many insects at this time of year, (B) I don't currently have any pets and (C) I don't have A good catalogue of unusual props, something that Alison managed to build up in all her travels. Nor do I think I possess her artistic skill for still life.

Then I found See Thru , a selfie no less and ironically shot for the Black and White Challenge themed "Movement" albeit a while before I joined the group. The upload she chose for the group is actually the version and not the main photo.

I decided this would be my focus for the challenge and I chose to focus on using my head for the movement and keep the rest of me as still as possible. I shot around 17 exposures and got a few Exorcist like images with head rotation although I can't help thinking it may be more "Worzel Gummidge". Smile

So it was nice to go into Alison's portfolio and although I know there will not be any more uploads I hope that many users end up stopping by there.

Based on Alsion's teddy bear and other stuffed things period.
One poor teddy has lost his/her eyesSad

Exif is a bit scanty because little manual lens info kept - I think aperture was F4 but can't really be sure because it took quite a few attempts.
