Monday Photo Shoot on Tuesday

Your Monday Photo Shoot: (http://journals.aol.com/johnmscalzi/bytheway) Share some of your favorite black and white photos. Older pictures are good, but what you also might think about is seeing how some of your favorite color pictures look in black and white -- most computer photo editors will let you make a photo black and white (or sepia-toned -- that's monochromatic, too). This is an opportunity to look at some of your best photos in a new way.

Well geez... I guess it's obvious John doesn't come by MY journal! lol I've used many black and whites recently! But I dug up yet one more just for his Monday Photo Shoot.


This is my brother when he was young and thin. (weren't we all? *sigh) He made the costumes for a big Halloween Party in NY. He and the gal to the right went as Beauty and the Beast. Take a good look at his face.. that's real hair glued to his face, my mother's hair to be precise!


The gal to his left was "snow" and her date went as "Winter". Way back then the only Beauty and the Beast he based the costumes on was the old original black and white movie. (Jean Cocteau 1949 ) I remember seeing that version too! It was probably one of the first Fantasy movies I ever saw on television.. quickly followed by a black and white King Kong and a black and white Mighty Joe Young.

Gee.. even back then Fantasy hooked me! Then I began to read Fantasy!
