Isaac and I went camping this “weekend” (ours, not yours!). We didn’t leave the house until 5:30ish on Sunday, because I had to work that day.
So, the sun was already on it’s way down when we finally got to our site and got everything all set up. It was cloudy, but hadn’t started raining yet (that came later, and in torrents!).
I looked up, and liking what I saw, sat down on a log to try and capture it.
*No tripods were harmed in the making of this photo, though maybe if I wasn’t lazy, they should have been!
Playing around with long exposures and b&w photography…

Then I turned my camera back on the house, and the pooch waiting for me to come back inside.
I wanted to try something different today so I switched my camera’s mode over to Black and White.
I found this frozen rose bush on a walk with Toby today, and thought it was really beautiful. I played around with the black and white setting that my camera offers. Both of the following images are basically SOOC.
I’m not sure which I like better. As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
I stopped by pigeon paradise today, on my way to work.
There were close to thirty of these guys hanging around between two street lights and the ground.
I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to compose them when I first got there, so I ended up with several variations. After I’d been there for a few minutes, the birds began to get a bit agitated -even though they were far above me- and started to take off, one by one.
I cropped this one and converted it to black and white with a touch of color.
Plus, a bonus bug crawling along one petal. Do you see him?
I’ve decided to get back over to Like Christmas Every Day‘s Wednesday photo collection, where I can start focusing more on B&W conversions.
This old car is getting eaten alive by the berry bushes surrounding it!
What do you think?
Alright, well I wanted to give you something good today, going into the weekend, but it’s now 9:42pm and I have nothing written.
So, instead of verbiage, here is a photo. I found this chair, randomly sitting on the side of a trail. I thought maybe it was marking something; the location for a drug deal, the entrance into a homeless camp, but in looking around I found nothing along those lines. Ah, well, it was fun to play that I’d happened upon something crazy.

Which do you like better, b&w or color?
At first I was looking for interesting splash patterns, but I caught one drop just as it hit the sink bottom, and I realized I had something much more interesting here!
This is entry for photo friday: fleeting
I added some contrast to this photo in Photoshop, and converted it to black and white. I like the grittiness of it.
Here are a couple others:
I wish this was a little crisper
one of those pattern photos I was telling you about
Maybe too much grittiness?
