Winter browns

Hey Jude for Life in Colour this month chose brown as the theme and asked “what browns can you find in the world?”. I took these photos today thinking about that theme. Brown is a funny color, I often don’t see it. I tend to see things that many people see as brown as shades of red or orange. I think these are brown?

Also this is my entry for Lens Artists: Its a small world.

Late fall close-ups

All of these were converted to black and white using Nik Silver Effects Pro.

For Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: close-ups.

Light and dark

Some photos from the past couple of weeks that have a strong contrast between light and dark.

While the contrast between light and dark is fundamental to black and white, I also find myself drawn to contrast in sharpness of detail and texture. You can see that in several of the photos above.

This week Hey Jude for Photo Challenge #46 asked for black and white focusing on contrast.

Fall glory

The past few days have been glorious. The lower angle of the sun makes the fall foliage glow. The blue skies compliment the golden to red palette of fall leaves. We took a long walk today, it is already clouding up and the next few days will be rainy, if the forecasts are correct.

I also want to share this great quote that I found yesterday:

For Sunday Stills: a celebration of leaves.

If you haven’t already:

Natural textures-in black and white

Every so often I take a picture because the pattern of the light catches my attention. While these are not exactly regular patterns they do have regularity to them.
