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.

      thank you! i took several views of this bridge (both sides) and the photos i took in black and white were really nice. in reality, the top stones are painted yellow (yuck!). it was very cold that day; blustery with sparkley snow. which was a great natural filter.
      thank you for your support, i love to see your comments.

    Yellow? Yuck. The black and white was a great choice. And I love to see your new pieces. You are very welcome.

      yes, i agree, double yuck. even in rural indiana a beautiful stone bridge doesn’t escape the county highway dept.’s yellow brush. that’s progress, i guess.
