Post: Black & White Conversion

Comments: You may be wondering, WTF? This is supposed to be a stranger! Well, first off, to you, I am. So there. Second, to be quite honest, I don’t even recognize myself anymore. Who is this middle-aged, overweight, graying, near-sighted woman who wears nerdy clip on sunglasses over bifocals? This is not who I was five years ago and the transformation has left me dumbfounded. What’s even weirder, is that I’m a stranger in a strange land on two more levels: I’m Spot the City Dog now living in a rural community and; this picture was taken on a Native American (Modoc) property where absolutely zero percent of my ancestors came from. To drive the stranger theme into the ground some more, I converted the shot into blacks & white as a nod to the traditional colors found on the cover art of Albert Camus’ The Stranger.
