52 Photos Project : Black & White

Whilst on a game drive during a recent trip to the Addo Elephant Park near Port Elizabeth, someone asked the ranger if zebras were completely vulnerable to attack from the Lions in the Park, due to their predominantly black and white colouring against the saturated colours of the vegetation. To my surprise, he answered that on the contrary they were very well camouflaged considering Lions could only distinguish things in Black & White. Bella’s prompt on the 52 Photo’s Project this week (www.52photosproject.com) is Black and White, so I thought it would be a good idea to do a little expriment to compare the results. I used a couple of images of zebras and one of a kudu from my trip and converted them to Black & White. These images, together with the original colour images, are posted as my reponse to the prompt………………the journey continues…………
