For Cee’s Flower of the Day and Wordless Wednesday.
Our world took a turn toward the white this week. I took these pictures a couple of days ago. Now the flowers are totally buried.
For HeyJude’s Life in Colour and Cee’s Flower of the Day.
Yellow is not prevalent in February in Seattle. For HeyJude’s Life in Colour I did a scavenger hunt for yellow while walking the dogs this morning.
Seeing things in black and white
Sometimes it is interesting to take a look at a picture without color to see what grabs your eye. I’m continuing my exploration of black and white. Never thought something that sounds so simple could be so complicated.
Does the black and white change your perspective of the photo?
My yellow rose is in full bloom right now.
I’ve been spending time this week reading about current events, and experimenting with black and white photo effects.
One trick I learned a few years ago was to look at a photo in black and white, it brings aspects of composition into focus that one misses in color. Sometimes something that seems almost incidental in a color photo will really jump out at you.
This is a time to listen, with our ears, and our hearts and minds. To put aside our opinions and really try to imagine walking in the shoes of others. It recurred to me that looking at things from a perspective of black and white may be a metaphor: it’s time to look at things in a totally new way.
As a conventional sort of person, the current events of the corona virus and the brutality of police toward citizens are really challenging me. But reading and listening, and trying to do so from other points of view to understand seem to be a necessary first step…Definitely before espousing opinions.
Looking up on a sunny fall morning. The dark branches made me think about Lines & Squares.
