I recently started following another photographer on Flickr that took an absolutely stunning photo of a flamingo.  It was somewhat surprising to me because he’d chosen to make the photo black and white, something I’d never even considered before.  Flamingos are an amazing color after all.  I sent him a message asking where I could purchase the image, and was flabbergasted when he said he would be happy to send me a digital copy so long as I promised not to try to pass it off as my own.  What a lovely gift!  I printed the image he gave me and I absolutely love it.  However, it made me think about my own photographs and I decided I wanted to try some BW edits of my flamingo photographs.  I’d taken some that I really loved several years ago at the NC Zoo.  I really love how they came out.
