B&W: Shades of Darkness
Challenge series hosted by RickBuddy. Challenges start on Mondays.
"Nothing is ever black & white, is it?" Maybe not, but it is in this challenge. We explore shade & shadow with an emphasis on the shady, gritty, more unsavory aspects of our world.

Winner: Take me home or Leave me alone
Black & White only. No color. No nudity. No lingerie. No minors. Show us some very freaky girls — the kind you don't take home to mother: Biker chicks, punkers, hard cases, etc. — just plain trouble.
