Black & White Take 2

Here are a couple of pictures for a second go-round of black and white for selfportraitchallenge.

This is me ascending my newly textured stairs. Yes the walls are textured, but the sprayer got the stairs too. They now have a coat of primer, as does most of my arm hair, yeouch, this stuff is so much harder than paint to get off!

So I thought I'd take a shadow picture since I'm surrounded by all these white walls (but not for long, color is a comin'!). I liked this one best because it has the top of my head, a bit of hair, a corner of my glasses.

I also am posting the greyscale and regular version of the photo. In this case I like the black/white version better. The light glow and wood stair and wallboard just look dirty compared to the whiteness of the wall texture. So when the color is removed to grey, problem solved. IF only it were that easy in real life. Sigh.

I think I have triceps again, at least I can feel them after all this painting. Whose idea exactly was it that we have 15 foot ceilings in the bedrooms??? oops, never mind.

Great texture and vibe in these photos. It feels a little mysterious.
