I think it’s the first time I participate to a blog challenge…. I was invited by Diana and Jim from exploRVistas, full-time RVers, to take part in a five days black and white photo challenge. At the beginning, I was a bit sceptic, because I’m not used to do black and white pictures. I welcome all tips to help me improving myself ! I hope you will enjoy the result :-)
Today is Day 1, and I’ve decided to share with you a picture of my last trip to Iceland that took place during summer 2014. I miss Iceland so much, this fascinating nature and breathtaking scenery. One of the most unexpected moment of this trip was our little encounter with the cute little Arctic fox on the parking lot of a guesthouse, in Heydalur (Westfjords).
We were curious about the presence of the little fox on the parking lot, so we asked one employee about it and she told us that some hunters killed the mum by mistake, and that her two cubs were left alone. Her and her brother were found in the surroundings of the guesthouse. So the people at the guesthouse decided to keep the little girl, and the The Arctic Fox Center in Súðavík took the little guy. If you want to see the colour version of it : Icelandic Road Trip – An Arctic fox and Northern lights.. what else to dream about !?
As part of the challenge, we are supposed to invite another blogger each day to join in. It’s the hardest part of the challenge, I would love to invite each of you :-)
I love John’s work at The Book of Bokeh. I’ve been following since my first steps on wordpress, and therefore I would like to invite him to join this challenge. He’s very inspiring, especially with his macro shots and I love his quirky sense of humour ! I share his love for the bokeh effect in photography, aka the out-of-focus areas in a picture. Even if he decide to not take part in the challenge, it’s not a big deal, but I will still encourage you to have a look at his blog, why not his last post to try to guess what he was trying to photograph :-)
There are only 2 rules to follow by accepting this challenge:
1.Post a different black and white photo of yours each day for five consecutive days.
2. Nominate a fellow blogger on each day to continue the challenge.
See you tomorrow for the next post !
