Have fun folks, hope we get more than three entries this round :roll: :)

Every time I click on the Post Image links or pictures it takes me to the page to post my own.

That would be altering the pic Fence, think we should stick to the rules ;-)

Perhaps the reason he asked if it could be edited to B&W is because some (maybe many) digital cameras don't have the capability to take B&W pictures--only color.

Well not to complicate things then, editing to B&W is allowed...not that anybody would be the wiser :D

A picture of just about anything looks good in black and white, that's the beauty of it.
