Ribbit – Monochrome Madness


Lately I’ve been in the mood for a laugh.  😀   Awhile ago I had taken a photo of these golfing frogs and converted it into B&W.  These little guys have been tucked away in a folder on my computer for a couple months I think.  Believe it or not, I did quite a bit of work on this one.  This is one of those images that I saw in B&W but converting it wasn’t easy.

The entire challenge can be found later on Leanne Cole’s Site “Monochrome Madness”  so please check it out.

  1. Ahhh…the golfing frogs. It does put a smile on my face, for sure! Nicely done Laura.

  2. Ribbit… I won’t lie, I chuckled a bit when I first saw this. Great work incorporating comedy into your photo!

  3. Golfing frogs… I love that… great photo… could have pictured this above my head in my office as a Golf Course Superintendent before I retired…

    • You were? How cool! I used to golf but not anymore. My hubby loves it. We still live on a golf course too. Thanks for your comment and glad you liked them. :))

  4. What fun (and nicely captured). I love their shadows…

  5. Reblogged this on Click And Color and commented:
    This makes me smile!

  6. Simple, but difficult – sometimes I thinks the easier we think something is to shoot the more difficult it becomes when we attempt to execute our vision. Good one for the challenge.

  7. Nice one… Sadly, I missed the challenge this week..

  8. Laura, this is great! Do you golf? I was a pro through my 20s, and though I often think golf nick nacks are terrible, I absolutely love these. Such a great image.

    • I used to golf and loved it. I golfed about three years and got to a 16. My physical issues don’t allow me to golf now and it’s why I do photography actually. My hubby is a 4. I don’t like the nick knacks either but loved these too. Thank you so much for liking the photo! :))

  9. nice shadows too! Mr. Toad goes golfing- a forgotten chapter of Wind in the Willows!! Definitely a smile of the day!

  10. Great job Laura, this brought a much needed grin to my face, reminds me of the frog from the Wind in the Willows. 🙂

  12. What happened to the club on the right figure? Seems out of shape!

  13. Interesting statues and a great subject for black and white, out of interest what was challenging about the conversion.

    • It was a couple months ago so I forget the details but generally when I converted it, there was wayyyy too much texture because of the frogs and the wall. So I had to get rid of it which wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. The shadows got distorted when i converted as well so I had to do one for the shadows, one for the wall, and one for the frogs and combine it all. Basically mask upon mask. I remember it being many layers.

  14. That is the sign of a true artist… make it look easy. 😉 Love these little guys….made me smile. 🙂

  15. Your little golfers brought a smile to my face Laura. Loved the shadows too. Nicely done.

  16. bwhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
