It’s kind of a bleak weather weekend for many people in the US: cold, snow, and more cold. It’s warmed up in Texas, hitting 50F as I walked around Canyon Lake today. The drowned trees (this is a Corps of Engineers dammed lake) fascinated me and so that’s what I had fun with today, both in the taking and in the post-processing.
That old-school Minolta lens I’ve been using has a much smaller field than the wide-angle I’m used to, so learning to compose shots within its field of view has been an interesting set of lessons the last month or so.
I’m learning that black and white photography is best viewed on something larger than a camera monitor or a phone screen, so treat yourself and view these images on a tablet or bigger screen if you can. The larger the screen, the more it showcases the tones of the images.
I hope you’re warm and dry today, wherever you are. The weekend, and warmer temperatures are on their way.
I don’t see the world completely in black and white. Sometimes I do.
