PROJECT BLACK TAKE 3


One of animations best known characters that began as a black and white mouse.
I thought he was a perfect black posting for the weekend.
Have a great weekend.
Check out Anna's Post of the Day in my sidebar for others participating in Project Black.

Mickey is recognisable all over the world!

Laurie said...

Of course! Mickey! I love Mickey.

ellen b said...

Another great subject! Well done...

JC said...

Indeed, he is perfect! Fabulous shot, too!

tsduff said...

All of your pictures on black & white are quite creative! The CHP makes me cringe and look in my mirror though...

Shelly said...

That's a fun one, it took me a second to recognize it without reading your text...loved the graphic quality.

AphotoAday said...

Yep, that is definitely my favoritie mouse.
When I was a kid I had a dog we named Mickey after that famous mouse, and now I have a black and white cat, but I just call her Kitty...

Nice job on framing up the composition on that shot.

And glad the smoke is thinning a bit in your area -- we had the same thing the last couple weeks of June, but the past two weeks haven't been too bad -- at least we've been able to see quite a bit of blue... Horrible fires and people have lost homes, so I guess I shouldn't complain about minor atmospheric conditions. I have a buddy who has a mother in Paradise -- that fire took a turn for the worse on Tuesday... And of course Big Sur is heavily damaged now and that one is still raging in the steep back-country. 92,000 acres now, I think they were saying a day or two ago with less than 50% containment. (oh, I'm sure you keep up on the news too, but just thought I would mention it)

lavenderlady said...

Absolutely...the perfect black and white!

MedaM said...

Oh that is Mickey Mouse; lovely!:-) It really is perfect black posting. Great idea, indeed!

Jenty said...

Great choice for the theme!

Beverly said...

Perfect post for Project black.

Carletta said...

I had a Mickey post in the planning and yours is the second I've seen today! I'll put mine towards the end.
This is a very well composed shot!
Actually I love it.

spaghettipie said...

Fun pictures and quite clever! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Sara said...

I'm enjoying your black and white (in color) photos! That cow tank is certainly unusual...

Steve Buser said...

It is a great posting. You didn't even have to identify it. I suspect that most people could identify this with just seeing about 1/10 of Mickey's face.

LeenaM said...

Guess, what! I have on a new Mickey T-shirt brought from Disneyland of Paris :)
It`s black and white too.
My son and daughter were with their
families in Paris.
I have been thinking a new project "Water", what ever is related to water.

I have to go again, we got our daughter`s family to the summer cottage and now the weather and water is at last warm enough to swim as long as you want.

Have a happy Sunday, Sue!

Hilary said...

Clever shot. Who can resist Mickey?

Amber Star said...

My favorite mouse :) Great thought to use him.

You have had a fine and humorous ida in choosing this kind guy.

CG said...

Excellent. I love the abstract quality to this.

Britt said...

Wonderful post! I love that Mickey is so timeless!

June said...

Can't do much better than Mickey! Good one...and thanks for stopping by Spatter.

Jeanne Damoff said...

I love how you chose only a portion of his oh-so-recognizable face. Good job!

Wanda said...

They are all wonderful...really like the cow...

Sorry I've been away from your post for a while...so busy with the grandkids while my daughter was sick.

Pequete said...

Yes, this is a perfect choice!

Bunny Trails said...

Great shot! That's especially fun that we had the same subject. Great minds think alike, right?!?

Thanks for dropping by. :D

Robert said...

I love how you got in close here. Nice composition.

quilly said...

Mickey! Of course! What a great idea.

JFargo said...

I'm going to his Florida home at the end of the month, and am very excited. This was a great choice for Project Black!

ruth said...

Perfect yes. And I like what you included in the frame very much.

I love this image! Very cool how you cropped it.
