Round Robins: Black and White
Black and White Landscape is the current Round Robin topic, suggested by Marie, author of the blog Photographs and Memories Too. Could there be a more perfect choice for a winter day? This is a shagbark hickory that lives in my front yard. If you look at the trunk, you can see that it's snowing.
I kept hoping for a grand vista to present itself for this one, or at least an interesting grove or garden, but nothing really grabbed me. I was surprised at how very different shots looked once the color was gone. So many photos that looked pretty good when they were taken lost all their appeal in grayscale. I'll be experimenting a lot more with this, learning to see structure and line alone. I do love a learning opportunity. Great topic, Marie!
