My Black & White Winter

March 11, 2010

henry county, indiana

what wonderful mild weather we are having here on the prairie! the sunshine and warm wind has done wonders for my mood. it’s also been quite kind to my gas account; the heat hasn’t kicked on for several days now. it was wonderful to fall asleep with the silvery moonlight from the full snow moon pouring through my window.

most of my favorite photographs taken this past winter have been black & white. i’ve been drawn to black & white photos for a long time. recently, i was inspired by a collection of ansel adams photos. another favorite photographer of mine is herni cartier-bresson.  oh! as far as black & white in  cinema,  if you ever get the chance, please see the passion of joan of arc.   it’s fabulous.  i promise.

with the passing of winter, it’s time to look forward to spring and all of the fun outdoor activites that come with it. along with spring comes color.

i’ll miss you black & white.
