    Stuck for ideas

    I have some homework to do for my course and I want to pick your brains.
    One of my tasks is to photograph black and white objects. Not have black and white photos, literally the subject(s) has to be black and white.
    I don't have a zebra in the back yard (and can't get to a zoo lol) but I was thinking along the lines of dominoes, black shoes on a white back drop or vice versa etc

    Do you have any ideas or tips for me?

    chess board, Dalmatian, black and white frock. Find a car park with a black car next to a white one, the road (tarmac and white lines), pages from a book, newspaper.

    G'day Dannielle

    wander down the isles in your local IGA [or whomever] and look for cardboard-box packaging ...
    then eat or drink the contents
