This week's challenge selection is black & white vs color by Fishing Guy. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
I'm glad this theme was chosen. I have been interested in doing more with black & white, but just haven't gotten around to it. I like some things better in B&W and other I like some things better in color.
