Can it be true what they say about blondes.....!!

Yesterday I was making a comment on Linda's The Road Awaits  blog and she mentioned that she was experimenting in black and white images as a challenge for her photography club, she was hoping to get some feed back on subjects that translate well into this genre. For me I think you can't go past either portraits or street scenes, I took this one in the city this week and as I had more than enough time to take the shot, it seems what they say about 'blondes' getting  just that wee bit more attention may be true, the waiter definitely 'loitered' haha!! I hope you have a fabulous Sunday.....


  1. Terrific, B&W, Grace!! I have to admit that I've never even tried it and I'm still so new to photography, I'm not at all sure how successful I would be! I do love the faces/expressions in this one -- pretty much says it all, doesn't it!! Enjoy your day!


  2. LOL, nice capture, Grace. Well, it is well documented that blondes have more fun :-)

  3. Waiters or waitresses here in KL seems to be extra polite to white females, blond or brunette! Go figure !

  4. Great shot Grace. Have a wonderful Sunday also.

  5. And his smile says he's interested! Nice shot.

  6. I think that he could loiter as long as he wants - nice looking guy!

  7. excellent b and w shot! may the young and the blond always enjoy the moment!

  8. nice slice-of-life shot here. keep up the B&W, the results can be quite stunning...

  9. It's a beautiful shot - everything so clear, focused and crisp. The theme of the picture is also clear.

  10. I dunno, Grace. I am less of a fan of black and white than many CDP bloggers seem to be. Blonds have more fun? Well, from your portrait photo, you seem to be a blond, so you should know!

    Do you think Birdman will take his brown bag off at our meet-up?

  11. What a great street shot. Not sure if it's true but it looks like they enjoyed the attention.

  12. Maybe it's not quite so romantic. I bet make waiters flirting with female customers get bigger tips.

  13. I think most of the time you can never go wrong with BW for portraits of any kind. It removes the distraction of colors etc. Love this shot. We can all put our spin on it.

  14. All sorts of black/white subtext in this post, Love!

  15. Bonza B&W photo and people do say blondes have more fun, but on the other side of the coin other people say blondes are a bit thick sometimes, i don't know if this is true or not :-).

  16. I suspect there comparing notes on the recently released movie "My week with Marylin".

  17. Being a blonde myself, I can say there was a time when I benefited from this form of attention. Sadly, that time has passed. It has certainly become harder to command that much attention.

  18. I dunno mum... Being a redhead can be pretty fun too... Great shot!

  19. hee hee...
    Being Chrome of Dome, not to mention male, «Louis» cannot speak to this...

  20. Bien sûr, Gracie, que ce qui se dit sur les blondes est vrai. D'ailleurs, paraît-il que de plus en plus de femmes, de nos jours, se font teindre en brunes...
    Mais on les reconnait dans la conversation!... :-)

  21. E' veramente divertente e bella foto.
    It 's really funny and nice photo!

  22. Ha ha. You could be right about the blonde issue.

  23. Could be true, or not... I think black and white goes well for plenty of subjects. Hope you had a good Sunday!

  24. Wow, Grace! What an awesome shot! Thanks for the "plug" too! I did manage to get some pretty awesome shots of my niece in black and white - one of them was good enough (I think) to enter in the challenge. We will see! After the advice from several people about portraits in B&W, I think I have to agree...portraits and street scenes are pretty awesome in B&W. I also got a pretty neat shot of an airplane on the tarmac at a local commuter airport, against an incredible sky. Still working on it! Have a wonderful evening!

  25. they are particularly fetching blondes.

  26. haha! touché! ^0^
    monochrome is always a nice choice.

  27. I agree with you about b & w pics. They only work for me with portraits and street scenes. And,'s true about blondes! My best friend is a leggy blonde and she always receives special attention, particularly from the male persuasion. When I'm out and about with her, I use it to my advantage and instruct her "Okay...use your powers! Get us a nice table!" : )

  28. Hey Jack, not a blonde, I'll reveal that. Think, Poe, Twain, Einstein and you'll be on the right track. Have I given too much away?

  29. Lovely shot, and I think the b&w adds a lot to the scene, actually. Also love the other blonde's expression while she is looking at her friend. What is she thinking? "Oh, stop flirting, will you? I saw him first!" ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  30. OK, can't resist...
    A blonde gets on an aircraft, and plops herself in the first seat in First Class. The flight attendant asks to see her ticket, which the blonde hands over. “I’m sorry ma’am, but you’re going to have to move back to coach, this is the first class area of the aircraft, and your ticket is for coach”.

    To which the blonde replies, “I’m blonde, and I’m beautiful, and I’m going to New York First Class, because I deserve it!!!!”. She refuses to budge.

    The flight attendant gets the senior flight attendant, and explains the situation. The Sr. flight attendant goes over to the blonde, and patiently explains the ins and outs of first class versus coach, ticket prices, etc., and instructs the blonde to gather her belongings and go back to coach. To which the blonde replies, “I’m blonde, and I’m beautiful, and I’m going to New York First Class, because I deserve it!!!!”, and defiantly refuses to move.

    Not sure what move to make next, the senior flight attendant knocks on the cockpit door, explains the situation and informs the Captain that there’s a dumb blonde in First Class who won’t go sit where she belongs. To which the Captain replies “No problem, I’ve got it”.

    He leaves the cockpit, calmly walks over to the blonde, leans over, and whispers in her ear. She jumps up like a bat out of hell, grabs all of her stuff, and runs back to coach. The Captain walks back over to the flight attendants, who are standing there in awe.

    “What on earth did you say to her, Captain, to get her to move like that?”.

    “Easy”, he said, “I told her First Class wasn’t going to New York!”.

  31. I will give any blonde attention, if she will come up and do my ironing.....
