Crab Apple b/w #60 (Sept 1)

With such colorful subjects as the crab apple trees, I haven't thought much about these images in black and white.  I like them, though.  In color, the blues can be inconsistent in tone.  The soft blues feel like a sixties snap shot; the deep blues make the pics nice and contrasty.  But in black and white, it really makes me question what I am seeing in the photo.  This one feels like water to me.  If you check my posts from this spring, you know I'm a fan of water.

I just spent 3 hours editing and color correcting images from a recent wedding and I needed to take a break and relax; I converted some of my tree images to black and white for a change of pace.  

I swear, though, that by the end of this winter I will have read a book. 

Not every waking hour should be about photos, right?

Right. And no reading books on photography, or photographers. That doesn't count!

I do see the watery aspect of this one. I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but when you said it, I said "that's it!"

About Me

My photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
