THE BLACK AND WHITE CHALLENGE

This time, we didn't give a theme for the poem, instead specifying that images be black and white. The trick, of course, was not simply to desaturate a photo but to poem the image so that the absence of color enhanced the haiga and deepened the haiga. We hope you'll find inspiration in the many ways our participants have addressed the problem—including one irresistible rule-breaker!

Instructions for submitting to the June 2012 Challenge may be found by clicking the "Submissions" link on the left sidebar.
