This week’s Monochrome Madness has me posting a picture of a lion. I’d love to say I was on a safari in Africa and dodged the charge of a rhino or fought a monkey to keep my banana, but the truth of the matter is that this was taken at the San Francisco Zoo, lol.
My goal was to make it seem like I didn’t take it at the zoo, so I won’t stop you from envisioning me in a pith hat, camping out in the wilderness, hiding behind some brush with an ultra-long lens. Yes, I boldly stood in front of a lion pen at the zoo and DARED to focus on this beautiful beast! I know, I’m so bold and brave…one might say I am “lionhearted”. 🙂
The image was taken in color and converted to B&W via Nik SEP2 with a bit of dodging and burning on the final image. RAWR! Doesn’t he look handsome?
You can find the entire challenge on Leanne Cole’s blog later today where there are sure to be lots of amazing images!
