project black #1 - an old friend

This guy has been with me for nearly 30 years now. He might not be who you think he is, though.



I apologize for the fuzzy quality - it was cropped from another shot.

You can see other Project Black entries at Anna Carson's.





I just had to post the rest of the story.






Did you figure out who he was?

Fun! I wouldn't have. Guessed it, that is!
Good take on black!
Cheers, Klaus

My guess wasn't even close! Very cool shot!

Paul Nichols said...

I give up. Who is it? Oh yeah! Cool, cool, cool. Nice job.

Ahh very nice and what a great black subject he is!!

I was wondering why pac man all the sudden was black. I'm glad you put that other shot in there or else I'd be having a bad night considering the possibilities.

Raven said...

What a great subject for project black. I would never have guessed Mickey from the first shot. (I thought it was a giant pacman set loose.) I love the last two - cool angles and I love all the wonderful reflections.

Willow said...

Very cute! I wouldn't have guessed!

Hey Dianne,

At first I thought "Pacman", but then I DID think Mickey! Glad you included a few other shots to let us know...and a tricky Project Black for today :).

When did you start a photo blog? I'm seriously thinking of doing the same thing and wonder how you like spreading yourself between two places.

Jenty said...

LOL, that's very clever!

Carletta said...

I was thinking pac-man too!
Nice shots!

June said...

My first thought was Pac-Man!

I thought it was pac-man also. Great shots. I also posted this same fellow today. Pop over and take a look.

Leora said...

I also thought of PacMan. But your real subject is a much friendlier guy.

Sara said...

You added an interesting twist to Project Black - a bit of mystery! Of course, at first I thought Pac Man's' silhouette....aging myself here! Never would have guessed that's Micky's eye...

Robert said...

I wouldn't have guessed either. Like others, I thought pac man. But then again, I've never seen pac man in black. Thanks for not keeping us in suspense. :)

Robin said...

Nope, I didn't get it, which is surprising considering my daughter's obsession with all things Mickey!

Dianne said...

I wouldn't have guessed either!

great shots, I loved scrolling down trying to guess as I did

I rarely encounter anyone who spells their name the same way I do

I know it's silly but I always enjoy it when I do :)

Rebecca said...

I didn't guess it either. I really like "guessing" games regarding photos.
